Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The arched brass dial has mask and foliage spandrels in the corners and in the arch there are opposing strike and silent dials with a blued steel pointer. The main dial centre, which is matted, has both calendar and mock pendulum apertures. The mock pendulum is delicately engraved with a floral motif. The 8-day hour striking movement has pull repeat on the hour.
Trypical of William Scafe, his signature is found in the arch on a silvered semi-circular disc. The chapter ring has Roman numerals and a double minutes circle with triangles at the five minutes. The strike/silent feature in the arch is most unusual. The two dials are separated by a profusely engraved brass centrepiece of floral designs, with a bird motif beneath the maker's signature. The hour and minute hands are well pierced and finished. The back plate and back-cock are likewise finely engraved with foliate designs and are centred by a bird motif which echoes the engraving in the arch.
