The Thorowgood family of clockmakers in London are recorded in Baillies "Watchmakers & Clockmakers of the World" as working from the late 1600's. Richard worked from 1783-1790 and Luke from 1768 - 1810 so could be either maker. A clock is illustrated on page 158 in 'The Georgian Bracket Clock' book by Stephen Thorowgood of similar appearance.
