Mitchell, Vance & Co., advertised as "designers and manufacturers of artistic gas fixtures, fine clock & bronzes, ornamental metal work for churches and public buildings". While they retailed the products of other makers, the individuality of this clock suggests the likelihood of their direct involvement in the design and the manufacture of the clock. It also appears that some revisions were made during the construction process, also indicating the possibility of a special order of which one, unique example was produced.
