Longcase Clocks

Longcase Clock

The heyday of the traditional London Longcase Clock was undoubtedly the mid 1700's when elegance and space were the hallmarks of an era which is still regarded as the highpoint of English design.

The cases are made from the finest selected timbers - usually English Walnut or Honduras Mahogany with curl or burr panels. The stringing line is inlaid brass. As a variation, a bevelled glass door can be fitted to the trunk to show the descending weights and the gently swinging pendulum. As each of our clocks is hand crafted, customers may specify any suitable wood or case style. The opposite page shows a contemporary style case made in a combination of English and Brown Oak.

The movements are 8 day, key wound weight driven and can be hour striking or a similar but much more complex quarter chiming on eight bells (with a ninth and larger bell for the hour) playing Westminster or Whittington chimes every 15 minutes.

We particularly recommend our Moonphase version with a handpainted dial depicting your own land and sea scene.

“Our Longcase Clocks embody every feature of fine design which made London Clocks so famous.”
