James Newman Lewes Longcase Clock C1780
- 80" (204cm) High 16" (42cm) Wide
An original oak Lewes longcase by a maker known to have been in partnership with two other businessmen in Lewes, Polhill and Harben. The 11″ dial beautifully engraved to show as in a regulator, separate hours, minutes and seconds. This clock is illustrated and discussed in the classic book on the subject ‘English 30 Hour Clocks’ by Jeff Darken & John Hooper. The oak case is a lovely faded colour and of particularly neat proportions because of the 11″ dial. A rare and unusual clock.
