An exceptional example of Victorian clockmaking, this imposing tall case, or grandfather, clock towers in a masterfully carved mahogany case. A complex eight-day movement powers the clock, which features nine tubular bells inside that chime the tunes of Westminster and Whittington. The clock face itself is spectacular with its gilt metal and nickel-plated chaptering, while a painted mechanism displays the moon phase. It is all contained within a mahogany case carved with a well-balanced symmetry and crowned by three turned finials. 

Designed to impress, the exhibition timepiece was likely crafted for one of the great international exhibitions or to display in the window of a clockmaker. As a whole, it shows the quality and mastery of both the cabinet and clock makers.
