Willm Jourdain, London

An automata longcase clock, the 30 cm arched square brass dial signed Willm Jourdain, London on a silvered tablet to the matt centre, the silvered chapter ring with Roman numerals, the centre with a subsidiary seconds dial and date aperture, the brass spandrels depicting the four seasons, and with a rocking Father of Time centred within a dial TEMPUS FUGIT MEMENTO MORI, and with N/S lever to 3 o'clock, fitted an eight day five pillar brass movement, striking on a bell, in a walnut case, 263 cm high (over finial)  With a pendulum, trunk door key, winding key and two brass cased weights. Looks to have been restored at some point, with the case particularly having had quite a harsh clean, a little bit of moulding missing to the hood door, from about 9 o'clock to 12 o'clock, trunk door with a small split, more towards the bottom and more visible from inside, but overall an impressive clock A piece of molding at the top of the chunk off but present. Various other knocks, chips etc to case and some loss moldings. With base weights, pendulum, door key and winding key. Movement appears to be a nice match to the case, probably original. Holes from cheek boards and seat boards match and all generally seems to match. Cheeks do not appear to have been altered. Slight warping to trunk door. Weights look to be in keeping.£3,750
