This is usually the proprieter of the store w the clock is located. In this case a Watchmaker/Jeweler in Lisbon Falls Maine. T are three stationary advertisements reverse painted on the middle glass. These are also period businesses in Lisbon Falls, Maine. These clocks were not sold but placed in high traffic stores and offices for advertising revenues. Sort of like the first Google.
