Description:'A Draught of a curious CLOCK in the possession of Mr. Richd. Green of Litchfield,(sic) Staffs.' Showing a clock decorated with statues of angels. Also showing a second clock in the design of a church, with pinnacles on the tower top.

Richard Greene (1719-1793) was an apothecary who set up a museum at his house on the south side of Market Street. On his death, the collection was sold, and some was purchased by his grandson, Richard Wright, and displayed at 20 The Close, and later on Dam Street. Some items can still be seen at Lichfield Heritage Centre. The altar clock in the centre of this engraving can be seen at the Victoria Art Gallery, Bath.
