The architecture of this clock case, with flowered Roman temple pediment and serpentine and cusp-arched door panel, relates to the George II 'picturesque' style of the 1740s. These features also appear on a clothes-press cabinet bearing the 1740s label of the celebrated Clerkenwell cabinet-maker Giles Grendey (d.1780 ). See C. Gilbert, Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture, Leeds, 1996, Fig.432.
