Lovely 30 hour grandfather clock by the maker Houghton of Chorley. Its in a lovely oak and mahogany case in nice condition, the movement and dial is very clean and totally original to each other and to the case the dial has a false 8 day dial with false winding holes in it but it is original to the movement it is so your friends thought you had an 8 day clock which was more expensive in the day so it makes it more interesting. It is ticking away and very clean, the case is also in great condition apart from a split in the base where the two panels have shrunk so easily clamped up and has a lovely colour.
It wood benefit from a small amount of restoration to the case as it requires a couple of pieces to the back feet but it still stands ok and perfectly straight.
