Case Typical Scottish, East coast, small, neat, pretty, quarter sawn long door, oak case with eagle/ball centred swan neck pediment, boxwood and ebony stringing to the mahogany crossbanded details, shaped side windows to hood and with plain strip plinth.
Dial 12" breakarch "Osborne" painted dial with moonphases to arch, raised gilt gesso corner spandrel borders enclosing scroll flanked flower vignettes. The moonphase disc is particularly interesting showing a man o' war to one detail and a well executed full length portrait of a Georgian military officer to the other. Roman chapters with "minutes numbered" outers, subsidiary seconds dial and "sad mouth" date aperture. Blued cut steel hands.

Maker John Allifon ( Allison ) of Montrose ( Scotland ) is recorded "High Street, Montrose 1798 - 1822" and also "Late 18C."
Date It is interesting to note that the dial maker ( Osborne of Birmingham) is recorded 1780 - 1808 so we may date the clock fairly accurately as circa 1805 which exactly ties in, stylistically.
