One of the items included in Sotheby's groundbreaking "Masterpieces of the Time Museum" sale in December 1999 was this quarter-hour chiming table clock made by the celebrated 17th century British clockmaker Thomas Tompion. It is one of only three known such clocks, made sometime around 1705, featuring a red tortoiseshell exterior, gilt-brass mount, and grande sonnerie chimes. Its 1999 sale set a world price record for both Tompion and English clocks.
