It features a silkworm and leaves motif is topped by a wizard with a wand and a blacksmith hammering a sword.
What story is the clock telling? Called the Silk Clock, it depicts a scene from King Arthur, according to a 1996 New York Times article.
On the hour, the wizard’s wand hits the blacksmith’s head. Then, another figure, The Lady on the Lake, briefly emerges.
The 1936 clock was built by the building’s original owner, Schwarzbock Looms—hence the silk in the name.
