An English pedestal clock
Rosewood; glass, with brass rim; silvered face
"CHAS. FRODSHAM. / CLOCK MAKER TO THE QUEEN. / 84 STRAND. / 1211." (engr: on face); "C. Frodsham, / 84 Strand / 1211." (engr: on verso of mechanism)
The clock is in the form of a drum resting on a scroll on a pedestal. It is serial number 1211 - the matching clock in the Reading Roome is 1212, suggesting the two were bought by the Club from Frodsham at the same time. The serial number is also very early dating the clocks close to 1831 and the furnishing of the first Club house on King Street.
