Long Case Clock - W Evans, Uttoxeter - Wood, Mahogany - First half 19th century

Description
Long Case Clock - W Evans, Uttoxeter - Wood, Mahogany - First half 19th century
Mechanical - 8 day movement - half hour, one bell

Antique English longcase clock, probably has an 8-day timepiece with bell, probably strikes every half hour. Above the dial is a moon phase depicting a rustic scene. In the dial are Roman numerals, very fine hand and second hand. Signed here as well, but it's hard to read, it probably says: 'W. Evans uit Uttoxeter' (W. Evans from Uttoxeter). There are Evans from that region who manufactured similar clocks.

The clock has a relatively high case which is nicely veneered and was constructed modularly, the glass case on the top side can be taken off, and the timepiece can easily be taken with you on the go. Due to this, everything is easily reachable for restoration, which is exactly what this clock deserves. It looks impressive already but it's not in working condition. There are a couple of various small damages in the woodwork as well. All loose parts have been collected and packaged. This includes the matching keys to the pendulum case and for winding purposes, of course. Please see the extensive series of photos.

The weight is an estimate.
