You are bidding for a Gabriel Smith Longcase clock, made in Barthomley Cheshire in about 1710. This clock is an exceptional example of his work and has been owned by me for over 25 years. The clock was restored by my late father and another gentleman called Frank Sadler who restored the movement. The clock has only been serviced once since then and keeps good time and works very well.

The movement is a five pillar movement and is completely original as is the face. The hands were remade by myself to the original pattern, these had been broken. Gabriel Smith was one of the leading clock makers in the country of his time and made very fine clocks. There is an example of one in Nantwich museum which was also made in Barthomley.

Gabriel Smith was without doubt one of the best early provincial makers born in 1654. He worked in barthomley from around 1690 – 1722 when he moved to Nantwich. He died in Barthomeley and his gravestone can be seen at St Bertoline's Church  Barthomley

 Please note that the case is possibly latter in date than the clock. In my opinion the case dates to about 1740-50 but would suggest that the case looks right and has been with the clock for a long time. Its not been messed around with to make it fit in other words This is a very reluctnat sale.

Buyer to collect. although I could deliver and set the clock up within 40 miles of Alsager for £120 for further destinations please ask for a quote
