Longcase Clocks

Brown of Thornbury circa 1800


Thornbury is not too far from the city of Bristol (12 miles North) and this is a very good example of not only Bristol Clockmaking but also a good example of the earlier 'Painted' or Japanned dial . The case is in Solid and veneered Mahogany , it has a long good shape Trunk door with a canted and fluted sides to the trunk , the classic 'Double Broken arch' Hood with Corinthian Capitols on fluted columns , a typical Bristol style Hood door , and the base is attractively veneered and inlaid with stringing . The clock runs for 7days and strikes the Hours on a Bell , J . Brown of Thornbury is recorded working from 1792 in Thornbury after he moved out from Bristol . We would date this to around 1800 but it could be as early as 1795 .
