Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The elaborate pink ground porcelain case is set with exotic birds and flowers on scroll feet, with gilded scrollwork and latticework. The 2.75 inch gilt dial with unusual alternating patterns of engine turning, roman numerals and blued steel moon hands.
The single fusee movement has anchor escapement to a brass crutch with u-shaped fork. The backplate is signed ‘Vulliamy LONDON’ and numbered 1186.
Decorative porcelain cases like this were fashionable in the 1st quarter of the 19th century and the early Victorian period, and in fact Vulliamy produced a number of clocks of this type. At least two were purchased by the Royal family and are still in the Royal Collection today.
