Made in 1695 by the leading clockmaker George Graham, this clock was bought by the 2nd Earl of Warrington and has always stood in the Great Hall. As with most of the other clocks by Graham which we have at Dunham Massey, the case was originally black, but was stripped in 1907. Graham was a leading clockmaker and inventor in the 1700s, and is buried in Westminster Abbey.
A monumental longcase clock made by George Graham, circa 1695, square dial with silvered metal chapter ring and chased ormolu spandrels with calendar aperture, enclosed in a yew wood case with panelled door and surmounted by three brass finials, no. 629.
