A very original, good quality longcase clock dating to the early 19th Century. It has a case of simple form, having a flat top hood, canted corners, a long door and bracket feet. The case is made from choice mahogany, (which was readily available due to the ships arriving from the Americas). It has an 8 day movement that sounds the hours on a bell. The 12 inch enamel dial is signed by the Maker, John Douglas of Dumbarton, who is listed as working in 1824-1826.
