Tear drop cases are especially pleasing to the eye - and not entirely common.  As such they are slightly more expensive than plain dial clocks.  

Samuel Sly of Norwich is an interesting man.  In addition to being a clock and watchmaker, and retailer, he was pastor of St. Margaret's chapel in Norwich for more than thirty years, from 1809 until he retired in 1840. His shop was located in White Lion Street, Norwich. He died in 1842.
