- Curator's comments
- This clock was made by Stephen Davall and Sons in Clerkenwell, but before they industrialised manufacture, meaning it has a much higher proportion of handwork and handfinishing than their later clocks.
See 'Clockmaking in England and Wales in the Twentieth Century : the industrialized manufacture of domestic mechanical clocks' by John Glanville and William M. Wolmuth, Crowood Press , 2015 p 319
