OS42 Barwise London. Circa 1860.We cannot find any record of a similar clock to this one, which is of the very finest quality, ever having been made and it would seem likely that it was a special commission for a very lucky lady from one of the leading London jewellers and goldsmiths. It is not just the design of the clock itself, which is so highly individual, it is also the beautifully executed stand on which it rests, the basic design for which could have been taken from a fine french table.

The embossed and attractively shaped top of the table has raised decoration to the three sides with a beautifully figured malachite panel let into the centre. The scrolled legs supporting it carry shaped uprights which terminate in another small platform, again with a malachite panel to the centre. Below the top of the table and on all four sides is inserted domed oval malachite. The table stands some 3.2" ( 7.6cms) high.

The clock itself, which is 4.5" high overall, is highly individual with tulips? to either side of the handle which is held onto the clock by lions heads. A shaped panel on top has a malachite panel and there are beautiful panels of the same material to either side. The columns to the corners terminate in lions paw feet.

The back door and indeed the whole clock, is decorated in beautifully executed and deep floral engraving. An unusual feature is that it is secured in place by a spring loaded latch. An eight day single train movement is employed with balance wheel.
