- Curator's comments
- This clock has a Tower timepiece movement. It is unusual to find a wall clock with this type of movement. Very good quality with a vertical platform.
The chain may well be a later addition, it has certainly at the least been relocated as there are empty screw holes.
See 2012,8028.152 for another Tower timepiece, but that one has a pendulum.
