30-hour longcase clock with painted arch dial featuring a sailing ship and coastal scenes, lacking a maker's signature, but probably from Carmarthenshire, circa 1840.

The oak case is embellished with extremely individual motifs inlaid in holly and both golden and bog oak, which are nevertheless recognizable as part of a distinctive tradition of decoration found in an area stretching from south Pembrokeshire to the Vale of Glamorgan and up the Towy valley.

The hood has a swan-neck pediment with central brass finial and rosettes, and plain turned pillars over a shaped trunk door above a base raised on a plinth.

84" high, 18.5" wide
213 cms high, 47 cms wide
