The mahogany case is veneered in exotic coromandel wood and inlaid with mother of pearl; it has an octagonal dial, cast brass bezel, side and bottom doors and carved ear pieces.
The 4 turned pillar shoulder plated 8-day twin fusse movement strikes the hours on a bell and the 12in dial has its original hands and is signed “Kent, Manchester”.
The Kent family were working in Manchester from 1769-1888. The most probable maker of this clock was one William Worsley Kent who was recorded making octagonal wall clock and worked at 63 Deansgate from 1832-63.
