Rare pub clock sells at auction (Scotland)





A pub clock dating back to the introduction of a tax on timepieces more than 200 years ago has sold at auction for £8,800.

The George III Act of Parliament clock, decorated with hunting scenes, was made around 1797 and was once on the wall of a tavern.

It was discovered in a house in Aberdeenshire, where it had been in the possession of a family for decades.

It was sold at Shapes auction house in Edinburgh.
