A native of Spain, Lozano learned his craft in London and spent his working life there, hence the London place-name and Spanish spelling on the dial of this clock. The case, dial, and back plate of the clock all reflect the influence of English rococo style but are not typically English. The movement incorporates a musical mechanism, with a choice of twelve tunes, which like the striking mechanism can be silenced at will.
Signature: On dial: [script] Thos. Lozano / EN LONDRES
