Antique Benjamin Booth Clock
C.1825, English, 30-Hour Brass Dial, rolling moon grandfather clock. The oak case with a broken arch top with dentil molding under the arch, and with the long door bordered in mahogany. The interesting thing about the case is that it has a period bracket base that the plinth sets in (bottom 5 inches is this base). The movement itself is by Benjamin Booth, Pontefract (in W. Yorkshire, about 35 miles above Sheffield). The paint on circular moon disc is about half flaked and it will need professional attention; the rest of the dial is very good, with engraved and silvered chapter ring, cast spandrels, and with calendar dial above 6. Seat board has added blocks under it to adjust height. Total height 89 inches
