Clocking up a difference

Here's one for the clock-watchers out there: a rare automaton mahogany longcase (grandfather) clock has come up for sale, which features a moving figure carrying a sack of flour or wheat. The bakery scene in the arch is engraved with 'The Large Bread Warehouse'. The clock was almost certainly specially made for a baker by clock-maker Thomas Bullock of Bath and dates from about the 1790s. It's for sale at £5,850. Interested? Then call Paul Kembery on 0117 9565281.
