The case is stood upon four brass, acorn feet.

* Richard Pinfold Ganthony needs no introduction as he was and is considered to be a top maker of his time. His numbering seems to have no records but the style of this clock puts it at around 1820. He was active from 1813 - 1845 and was apprenticed to his father (also Richard). He was freed in 1820 and became Master of the Clockmaker's Company in 1845. This is a fine example of his work and very small.
