Obadiah Body of Battle Ca 1750.
Obadiah Body was an innovative maker as is evidenced in the making of this birdcage 30 hour longcase. It has a pretty 10″ matted brass dial centre with engraved birds typical of the time and for this area. It is contained in a light Oak case with a blind fret and dentil cornice over fluted hood columns. A very smart little clock.
