Favourite Item
The clock's central circular dial is situated in a spectacular ormolu case, above a leaf chased water spout with a lion mask, flanked by a lute player modelled in a naturalistic way. The case is French, but the movement has been made by George Jamison, who was an English clock-maker.

The architectural elements depicted on the clock's casing and the clothes of the lute player allude to Renaissance Europe, perhaps Venice, due to the characteristic palazzo arches and the lion mask on the fountain.
