The caddy top case decorated with five flaming urn finials and ribbon-tied foliate festoons, above an arched cast brass glazed door. This is flanked by a caryatid to each corner, with a foliate cast handle and pierced mask arched panel to each side, the clkock is raised on a stepped foot with scroll cast ormolu feet.
It has a 6½in. silvered Roman chapter ring with a matted gilt centre and pierced blue steel hands, the arch above with three subsidiary dials for strike/silent, slow /fast, chime on eight bells/Westminster chime.
The three train chain fusée movement with anchor escapement and pendulum locking block chiming the quarters on eight bells, with pull-quarter repeat and striking the hour on a gong.
It keeps really good time and is delightful to look at and hear the wondrous chimes.
This clock is in excellent working condition, the movement having been cleaned and serviced, the ormolu mounts having been polished, please see photos for confirmation.
