Marquetry and lacquered grandfather clock cases

Both used to house top quality works. Made from the mid to late seventeeth century to the early to mid eighteenth century. I do not think that many, if any, Cheshire clockmakers would have housed their works in such cases. A marquetry case, housing a works by Thomas Talbot of Nantwich, was recently sold in a Cheshire saleroom and a question mark was placed upon the originality of the clock.
