A relatively large and rare gold cased Chinoiserie break arch clock in the Regency style by John Bennett, Cheapside, London, circa 1860.

 

The case allover decorated with Chinoiserie scenes in relief including figures in the garden with Pagodas and trees, on brass bun feet.

 

The silvered face with Roman numerals and inscribed 'John Bennett, 65 & 64 Cheapside, London'.

 

The two train movement strikes the hours and half hours on a coiled gong.
