Longcase clock, Pieter van den Bergh, c. 1780

wood (plant material), h 280.0cm × w 63.5cm × d 32.0cm. More details

The case of this clock is designed to resemble a Classical column, with the fluting (narrow, vertical grooves) rendered in marquetry. Above the clock face are a mechanism with moving ships and a painted view of Rotterdam. In 1780 the Rotterdam cabinetmaker Oerberg organized a lottery, in which he most likely put up this clock as a prize.
