Lot Essay

Henry Jones, 1642-1695, Master 1691. Jones' work was notoriously varied and experimental and this clock is a case in point. The copper dial has been gilded with the chapter ring and spandrels on leaving bare copper beneath nad the Dutch strike is probably period but it does seem to have been altered in the past.
