The case has an engraved and signed front fret, engraved with intertwined dolphins and is surmounted by the brass bell and finial. This rare clock retains its original verge movement and central alarm disc.
Thomas Wheeler specialised in making lantern clocks of this 'winged' variety which is particularly attractive, showing the movement of the swinging pendulum against the background of both side doors.
