  • Origin:
A charming and dignified granddaughter clock would be a prized addition to any parlor. The mahogany body is slender and understated. The inscription "Tempus Fugit" adorns the metal face, and a motif of flowers and foliage completes the etched design. It incorporates classical architectural features into its casing, including scrollwork carved in the frieze, column supports for the pediment, and fluting on the front of the casing. This timepiece is an endearing example of English clockmaking.
