John Stratton, Devizes

John Stratton is listed as working in the Market Place in Devizes in 1830.

The dial is fully silvered and beautifully engraved with a picture of a lady, and also features a calendar.

The eight-day movement strikes the hours on a bell.

The hood door has traditional wavy edging and there is ebony stringing on the case.

To the rear of the case is written “deliver to Mr Stratton, Clock & Watchmaker, Devizes” and this adds nicely to the originality of this elegant clock.
