* These clocks are extremely rare because of their vulnerability to worm and breakages, it is unusual to see an example that is over two hundred years in such original condition. The maker (Joseph Fly), is listed as working throughout the second half of the eighteenth century and the use of Arabic numerals on this style of case was popular between 1790 and 1810. The design of the case on this example was to enable it to be placed safely against a wall at the back of a table, shelf or mantelpiece.
