PETER BOWER, REDLENCH

Peter Bower, Redlench Salisbury married in 1715 and departed Redlench in 1795. This small 6'5" dark oak cased "30 hour" clock was a "barn find" albeit the barn was mercifully dry!  The two handed 9 1/2" dial has a silvered chapter ring has both roman and arabic numerals, steel hands and an attractive engraved centre with flower heads and foliage.  This case has it's original hood knob and the waist door it's original hinges and lock.  Even the hood lock is still present.  The clock may be dated say 1775.

Michael Snell in his book on Salisbury clocks gives readers much information about Bower- e.g. hooked pendulums- and two good illustrations of Bower cases and movements- see pages 143 and 144. Note the fret to the hood above the dial to let the ringing of the large bell be heard by all!

I cannot imagine a better, smaller cottage longcase clock.
