A Cole chiffonier clock of related design was sold Christie's London, Important Clocks and Marine Chronometers, 6 December 2006, lot 41. The present clock differs in having fully engraved side panels rather than malachite panels. On the previous clock the key drawer was inset with bloodstones and its upper platform was covered by a malachite panel; on this clock the platform is pierced and engraved with two equestrian figures, allowing a view of the beautifully engraved key drawer below. The doors here open to an engraved interior of drawers with pierced with apertures for front winding, hand set and regulation - all features found to the reverse of the previous clock. The rear finials, cast as buds, are also decidedly more elaborate. Both clocks have Cole's 'secret' signature stamped behind their inside door panels. The previous example carried a presentation inscription dated 1854 and it is probable this clock derives from around that time also.
