A magnificent Aesthetic Movement mantel clock, with an ebonised mahogany case and an exquisitely painted dial. The case embodies the style of the Aesthetic Movement , with an arched and turned gallery, surmounted by two turned ball finials, with a dentil moulding below. Supporting the finials are two turned spindle pilasters framing the dial.
The blue and white hand-painted and glazed porcelain dial depicts allegories of night and day within a floral and foliate design, Night appearing as a women in sleep with a bat flying above her, and Day, gazing up at a swift as it swoops past. The chapter ring takes the form of a sunflower, each petal frames a number. The simple brass hands are fixed within the centre of another sunflower. The movement is a twin-train eight day movement, strikes on the hour and half hour and runs well.

Attributed to Lewis Foreman Day for the retailers, Howell, James & Co of Regent Street, London.
