A rare late 19th century novelty brass wall clock, the mechanism hidden behind a stylised half-moon face with a Roman dial.

This moon has the power to bring back a sense of wonder to the most grown-up of individuals; in children it may just inspire learning beyond our own planet. The satellite is more accessible to children than other objects in the sky due to its proximity to earth and often arouses curiosity. It is also associated with bedtime, which brings back memories of peaceful, childlike sleeps.
