A Decorative 19thC Grandfather Clock Painted Dial


Origin: British
Period: Early / Mid Twentieth Century
Provenance: Unknown
Date: c.1820-40
Height: 17 inches
Width: 12 inches

The eight day face with arch top and space for rolling moon wheel hand painted with roman numerals, the corners with floral sprays and gold anchor motifs, the top arch depicting a country house scene with a double arched bridge and river, with a couple walking in the foreground. Verso the face shows the usual pins which would have held part of the movement.

Once having been the face of a long case clock, this face is in as found condition and has not been cleaned or restored in any way, thus retaining its charms as a decorative piece of wall art. There is therefore rusting and marking to the face and wear to the paint, but it is even and commensurate with age.

An imaginative way to decorate a wall with a piece of nineteenth century artwork at an affordable price, whilst grouping various dials together makes for a great spectacle.
