The following description has been kindly supplied by Tim Marshall who is an Oxfordshire quaker clock researcher and dealer
"Two handed 30 hour clock by John Fardon 1, circa 1720/30. The 10" square dial displays the characteristic north oxfordshire quaker ring and zig zag engraving, mask spandrels and original steel hands, the narrow 5 minute band around the edge of the chapter ring suggesting an early 18th century date. The early brass plated movement, countwheel striking each hour on a bell mounted on the front movement plate, good quality early finned pillars, anchor escapement, crude ironwork including an interesting decorated bell hammer spring. Now housed in a much later early nineteenth century (circa 1830) countrymade oak case."
