Clocks of closely related design but with cut glass cupolas and columns (to the main case and to the top) are illustrated in R.C.R. Barder, The Georgian Bracket Clock 1714-1830, Woodbridge, 1993, pp. 161-162, pls. 22 and 25. See also pl. 23. A tortoiseshell-veneered variant of this model with brass upper columns and veneered cupola similar to this clock is illustrated on p. 168, pl. V/12. Interestingly, all these examples were made for the Turkish market and had enamel dials. Although the chapter rings on the present clock are unusual for having painted (rather than engraved) inscriptions there is no sign of them having been changed; it may also be noted that the dancing automaton figures on this clock (an unusual feature) would not be found on an example for the Turkish market. This clock seems therefore to have been made as a domestic market variant of a style popularly used for the export market.
