       superb and rare early 18th century versed 8-day longcase clock by John Sanderson of Wigton. Dating from around c1705, the clock is housed in its restored London style black lacquered case. The 11.5-inch square solid brass dial has a polished dial centre with ringed winding holes and ringed date calendar. There is a religious verse to the dial centre which is wonderfully engraved ‘Memento Mori’ (Bear Death in Mind). The applied chapter has attached trident half hour-markers and is signed 'John Sanderson Wigton Fecit’. There are spandrels to the four corners which are the twin cherubs with crown type. The 5-ringed and finned pillar movement with rack striking is in a very original and untouched condition throughout including retaining all its original wheelwork.  Note the Westmoreland calendar wheel passing over one of the winding holes. This type of calendar is more suitable for 30-hour clocks, but interestingly Sanderson also used it on some of his early 8-day examples!
