      n attractive and anonymous 8.25 inch square brass dial hook-and-spike. Dating from around c1720 the polished dial centre has a wonderfully naive engraving of four birds within a loose foliage design and may well have been engraved by the clockmaker himself.

     superb 30-hour painted pine longcase by John Sanderson of Wigton dating from around 1720. The dial centre is deeply engraved with a religous verse that reads ' Remember Man that die thou must and after that to judgement just '. Apart from the verse there are also engraved tulip flowers and  birds of peace between a ' tied knot ' suggesting to me that this clock may have originally been made for a newly wed couple.

       rare early 18th century versed 8-day longcase clock by John Sanderson of Wigton. Dating from around c1705 - c1710, the clock is housed in a 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!
