The Seymour tall case clock in the White House, more commonly known as the Oval Office grandfather clock, is an 8 feet 10 inches (269 cm) longcase clock, made of mahogany between 1795–1805 in Boston by John and Thomas Seymour and located in the Oval Office of the White House since 1975. Since the presidency of Gerald Ford it has remained one of the only constant features in the office, throughout several renovations.
Jimmy Carter said that, during the last stages of the Iran hostage crisis negotiations when he spent forty-eight hours continuously in the Oval Office, "No matter who was with me, we watched the big grandfather clock by the door."
The clock was mentioned specifically by the former FBI director James Comey, in his written statement to Congress, published the day before his testimony to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence regarding his being dismissed by President Donald Trump. This very specific and repeated mention of the clock raised increased interest in the clock's own history and caused a minor sensation on social media.
When the door by the grandfather clock closed, and we were alone, the President began by saying, 'I want to talk about Mike Flynn.'...
After he had spoken for a few minutes about leaks, Reince Priebus leaned in through the door by the grandfather clock and I could see a group of people waiting behind him...
The President returned briefly to the problem of leaks. I then got up and left out the door by the grandfather clock, making my way through the large group of people waiting there, including Mr. Priebus and the Vice President... ”
— James Comey
Grandfather Clocks, as clocks are symbols of time. However, traditional grandfather clocks have to be wound and are, therefore, a symbol of your personal connection with the passing of time. If you dream about the pendulum on a grandfather clock it is a sign that you are wasting time.

Also, possibly a devil cat or bunny rabbit in the wood grain at the bottom of it...
