Peter Fearnley English George III Mahogany Tall Case Clock, Wigan circa 1775 - image 1 of 16

An exceptional Northern English mahogany tall case clock by clockmaker Peter Fearnley (1749-1826) of Wigan, Lancashire, England. Fearnley was known to use mottos on his dials, such as “Time is valuable,” “Tempus Fugit,” and “The man is yet unborn who duly weighs an hour”. This fine mahogany tall case is scaled to match the fine engraved 14.5 inch brass dial. The split pediment hood or bonnet with gilt carved rosettes and dentil molding retains restored original glass panels, finely gold leafed in a complimentary pattern. The hood pillars are fluted mahogany and original, as well as the three brass ball & spire finials. The large brass & silvered Roman Numeral dial includes a fine original moon-phase dial with a female face, as well as half-hemispheres on two sides finely engraved “Time is Valuable”. The chapter ring is engraved all around with a full calendar showing every day of the month with a sweep day hand. The dial shows minute and the hour. The center of the dial is finely silvered with swirling foliage. The fine movement is two train with calendar hand. The waist door features figured mahogany veneer flanked by reeded quarter column corners.
The tall clock is in very good overall condition, with some minor paint losses on the moon phase dial, and other minor imperfections and light wear commensurate with age and use. Dimensions: 95.5 in H x 25.5 in W x 10.5 in D. Ref: 955
