Early form of finned and knopped pillars. Signed to lower chapter ring "James Yeomans of Mercaston fecit" Beautifully designed and executed.I haven't seen another like it in my lifetime, so far. 30 hour clocks which have internal rack striking are rare, when they also sound the quarters they are VERY rare. - Price: £7,250
