This is a fine mahogany long case clock with painted dial signed “Barker, Framlingham.”

This simply formed well proportioned case is constructed in mahogany. It stands on an applied bracket base. The feet are simply cut and form and apron in the center. The waist section is long and fitted with a tombstone shaped waist door. This door allows one access to the weights and pendulum. A simple reeded design element is incorporated in the corners of the waist. The dome top bonnet is surmounted with a fret work design. Three fluted plinths which are capped support the mounted ball and spiked brass finials. Fully turned and fluted bonnet columns are positioned on either side of the bonnet door. The glazed bonnet door is arched and opens to a colorfully painted dial. The Maker’s name and working location can be found in this location. A seconds subsidiary dial is also displayed within the time track. The time and strike movement is brass, eight-day duration and of good quality.

This clock stands approximately 7 feet 7 inches tall to the top of the center finial. It was made circa 1830.
