I’ve had the good fortune of being the ( temporary) custodian of many tallcase clocks mostly English occasionally Scottish and even American but this is the first period Irish longcase to come into my possession, an absolutely beautiful 200 year old Irish Regency mahogany cased clock from Dublin with a stunning brass dial and original eight day movement, it even has the Original paper labels. Feeling very privileged to have this piece of history. #irish#regency#mahogany#dublin#irishclock#antique#applewood#beautifultimepiece#longcaseclock#antiqueclock#privileged#elegant#history
