Two train tavern clocks are very rare, and more so by distinguished makers such as Thomas Dutton. It has a pair of lead weights that are tapered to fit the chisel foot of the case, which has a door to access the regulating nut, and a steel rod pendulum. 

Thomas Dutton was one of the two sons of the celebrated maker William Dutton, and was apprenticed to his father as was his brother Matthew. He was admitted to the Clockmakers Company in 1791, and the two brothers worked in partnership at 148 Fleet Street 1799 - 1804, and thereafter apparently Thomas continued there on his own account.
