Mahogany grandfather clock cases

Mahogany was used to make grandfather, longcase, tallcase clock cases from the mid eighteenth century right up to the end of the clocks being made at the end of the nineteenth century. It was used initially in its solid state, and then as a veneer on either pine or oak. I tend to think of mahogany being used to house "Town Clocks". In recent times, people are on the lookout for smaller clocks and many works made in the cheshire part of the country can be found housed in very pretty mahogany cases.I prefer a larger Grandfather, Longcase,Tallcase clock and here we see the Liverpool and Manchester type case being used to house Cheshire movements.The tall,long ,full length door type of case that cannot be bettered in any other part of the country.
