About

This mahogany grandfather clock was made by Thomas Pringle, St. Ninians, Scotland. There is a finely engraved brass dial with a strike or silent mode. It is engraved with a Mason's compass, rule, and hand saw. The cornice is decorated with rare iglomise panels painted with classical urns and gilt arabesques. The crown molding has dentil work and carved rosettes in the broken arch. There is blind fretwork in the frieze below the bonnet. The corners of the body have stop fluted corner columns. The door is inlaid with herringbone ebony and boxwood. It is crossbanded with mahogany that frames a flame grained mahogany center panel. The lower panel is also crossbanded with mahogany and frames a flame grained mahogany center.
