Grandmother Clock

If you remember C was away the other night. The reason being he went to buy a new old clock. This time and for the first time, a huge one, not as huge as a Grandfather clock but next best, a Grandmother Clock. And here it is posing alongside it's new owner, C himself.

It was made in 1760, the face isn't inside yet as it needs a bit of tweaking to bring it up to perfection, though it's been well looked after by it's most recent owner, a nice old lady from the small town of Ottery St Mary - hence C staying away at his mother's the night who lives close by.

It's slightly unusual being highly carved, but we love it. Only trouble is - where do we put it?? Any suggestions please post in the comments box.
