One of the days that we were in London was spent entirely in the British Museum. It is absolutely incredible how much history is contained within that one huge building. It was incredible to see the different sections devoted to different eras and types of artifacts, from Ancient Egypt to modern Britain. This particular clock was in a room that was devoted entirely to time-keeping artifacts. I loved the ornate detail on thsi one, and how it was placed so that you could see both the cover and the insides with all of the gears. If your'e ever in London, the British Museum is an absolute must-see.
