This Longcase Oak's Maker - John Mercer of Hythe. N.B. Two makers of this name recorded .Dating by style this is the earlier one recorded "pre 1736". Further recorded " A very good early lantern clock with floral and tulip engraving on the dial and with dolphin frets has been recorded. Regettably this clock has been fitted with a fusee movement at a later date, but the style of the dial leads one to suppose that he must have been working very early in the 18C. All of the longcase movements seen have been of good quality with 5 ringed pillars and housed in oak or walnut cases".
