The hood has its original shallow caddy and free standing turned side pillars. The long trunk door has a typical “Lake District” double hump top and is crossbanded as is the base, which sits on small bracket feet. The eight day, hourly striking movement of typical Gandy quality has 4 finely turned pillars, good metal work and countwheel strike. Gandy was renowned for his unusual dials with flamboyant engraving, which he did himself.

The dial is 11 3/4″ square, has brass corner spandrels, a silvered chapter ring with elaborately engraved 1/2 hour markers, applied ringed brass winding hole circles and brass outer seconds and date dials. The centre is silvered making a good contrast for the brass circles.

Height: 84 ”
