Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The dial is signed at the base 'THOS KEFFORD ROYSTON' and bears gilt Roman hour numerals and Arabic minutes at five minute intervals. The trunk beneath has an arched door decorated with gilt chinoiserie decoration on a black ground depicting a lady within a garden landscape. The sides are painted with chrysanthemums and leafwork.
The 8-day weight -driven timepiece movement has an anchor escapement.
For a similar shield dial tavern clock see Rose, English Dial Clocks (2000), plate 28 (by Matthew Worgan, Bristol, circa 1765).
See also Martin Gatto, The Tavern Clock (2015), p.141 for description of this clock.
