  THOMAS STUBBS, London c1710

A fine Queen Anne longcase clock.  The elegantly proportioned case is veneered in richly figured walnut which has achieved excellent colour and patination.  Standing on a single plinth, the long moulded door rises to a flat top hood flanked by turned columns.

The eight-day duration movement is in a fine state of preservation and includes an anchor escapement and bell strike via an inside locking plate.

The 11 inch square dial is mounted with silvered chapter ring, seconds ring and corner spandrels in the form of cherubs supporting the Maltese cross.  The centre is finely matted with an aperture to view the day of the month and the silvered chapter ring is signed at 6 o’clock by the maker Thomas Stubbs, London.

Stubbs is recorded as being free of the Clockmakers Company in 1685 and is noted as being keeper of the Saint Paul’s clock.
