18th Century 1785 Danish Bornholm Pine Long-Case Clock
This stunning Danish Pine Long-Case Clock is presented with its original dry scraped back colour with gilt highlights and the 8 hour movement is in full working order, striking every hour and half hour. It was made by CC Holm in the year 1785 on the small island of Bornholm which is situated off the coast of Denmark. The hood has a dentil frieze and laurel carving to the face with observation panels on a slender body with canted corners and door. Standing on a tapered base with gilt swag raised on splayed feet. The aesthetics of this fine looking decorative piece are not the only remarkable feature; on the inside of the door it retains its full long service history. Its proportions add to its elegance and the fact that it is not overly tall at 198cm (78") allows it to fit in most homes without difficulty.
