Richard Comber of Lewes, Ca 1800.
Made at the turn of the 19th century this is likely to be one of the very last clocks ever produced by this fine maker, if not the last. Certainly it is the only one we have seen with a painted dial and is unusual in being 13″ in size as we only know of one other brass dial of similar dimensions. It is contained as so often , in a simple light oak case with the usual perfect proportions so particular to Comber, but also employed (dare we say copied ?) by other Lewes makers of the period. A handsome clock altogether, with all the usual Comber refinement, five pillar movement, large brass bob etc.
