A 19th century Scottish George IV period mahogany cased Grandfather clock.
The clock has decorative painted dial with a scene at the top of “Robert Burns at the Plough”.
By repute Burns was ploughing a field and turned up a mouse’s winter nest destroying it, then wrote a poem about the incident.
The corners of the dial have painted scenes of the four seasons and the clock has an eight day movement that strikes the hour on a bell.
The case is made from figured mahogany with recessed panels and quarter columns either side of the door.
The hood has a carved and shaped swan neck pediment with a turned finial to the centre and the dial has ‘Calvert Dundee’ painted on.
Arthur Calvert was a watchmaker and jeweller situated at 44 Wellgate, Dundee in the 19th century.
The case is in good condition with a good rich mahogany colour and the clock is in full working order. (Circa 1835)
