A rare Queen Anne period marquetry bracket clock by this fine Lincoln maker. The fully restored 8-day verge movement strikes the hours on a bell and has pull quarter-repeat work on six bells. The brass dial has four winged cherub's head corner spandrels, a finely matted centre, a curved dummy pendulum aperture, inset date work below XII and a strike/silent lever above. The backplate is beautifully engraved with tulips and foliage within a wheatear border. The maker's signature John Stokeld, Lincoln is set inside a scrolling cartouche. The elaborate domed case has fine cross-grain walnut mouldings and scrolling seaweed marquetry veneers. Above and below are runs of lighter acanthus leaf decoration. The case stands on four brass bun feet and it has a finely chased double S scroll brass carrying handle.
