Circa 1780, George III mahogany case grandfather clock by J Hanny of Dublin. The hood has a broken pediment, stylish swag, cast brass flowers at each top, and a brass finial beneath the top. To either side there are 2 turned and tapering columns with stylish cast capitals and a single glazed door. The face is a mixture of cast brass spandles and engraving, and at the top there is an arch depicting caricatures of the moon. There is also a 2nd hand and calendar. The engraving of the makers name is at the bottom of the 5 & 7. Beneath the hood there is an ogee moulding and a Chippendale style fretwork panel that runs around the front and the sides. Beneath this there are 2 fluted quarter columns to either side and a stylish flame mahogany door with a shaped top and stylish brass escutcheon. The ogee moulding occurs below this and then continues on to a large mahogany panel as the clock stands on stylish squat French bracket feet.
The clock has been serviced and is working.
