Wignall took over the running of her husband’s business on his death in 1815 with her sons George and Ellis. The signature is to a circular dial fronting an eight-day movement striking the hours on a bell. The clock, right, has a flamed mahogany case with fish scale frets to the sides and is available from Lancaster House Antiques for £2950.

The fair runs from April 26-28 at the stately home near Cheshire. Paintings, furniture, silver, rugs and much more are available at prices from £20 up to £30,000.

As well as exploring the estate, which has been in the same family for more than 500 years, visitors can buy refreshments in the Tudor Barn.
