A stunning George III Eight day striking Mahogany longcase clock by Royal Maker Daniel De St. Leu, who was watch and clockmaker to Queen Charlotte, the beloved wife of George III.
This beautiful longcase clock has a very rich colour to the mahogany case and a wonderful vibrant flame to the veneers.
It was a great honour to be commissioned by the Royal Family to make and repair their clocks and watches. Daniel De St. Leu was a very illustrious watch and clockmaker whose works are represented in the Royal Collection.
Some lesser known facts about Queen Charlotte is that she founded Kew Gardens in London, she bore 15 children (13 of whom survived to adulthood), and she was a patron of the arts who commissioned Mozart.

Mahogany and brass
Very good condition, considering the clock is over 250 years old. There are some general marks and slight bowing to the base carcass, typical for this style. There are several old securing holes in the backboard and some minor marks to the brasswork. The movement has been fully overhauled.
