Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The dial has an elaborately engraved centre with tulips and foliage and a typically narrow chapter ring with Roman numerals . It has its original alarm setting disc and a finely pierced iron hand. The front fret is well engraved with a grotesque pair of dolphins and the design of the plain side frets is a simplified version of the front without the engraving.
The short duration movement has been converted from balance wheel to anchor escapement probably in the late 17th century and now has a long seconds pendulum suspended from a backcock. The restored Alarm train is also mounted on the outside of the iron backplate.
Lead weights and counter weights.
Height including finial: 15 in (38 cm)
