CR Ashbee Clock

A copy of a beautiful Arts & Crafts clock designed by Ashbee c.1901.The main case is in Oak, with a marquetry front panel representing the 'ship of the Guild' (= the Guild Of Handicraft, set up in East London, and later to famously move to the Cotwolds). Ashbee was an immensely talented designer, especially of metalwork.

Interestingly this case design was 'borrowed' from a barometer case designed by CFA Voysey, to go with his painted clock case. The Glasgow firm of Wylie & Lockhead were also involved in producing this clock design.
The legs are tapered, with a moulded top and base. The face is protected with brass and glass. There is a door on the reverse for access. Clock Ht 11"/ 28cm. Waxed finish. Made to order.
