Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The bronze and gilt case, basically rectangular in form, rests on four attractively turned and gilded feet which may be used to adjust the level of the clock. To the four corners of the 5" diameter convex enamelled dial, which is surrounded by an engine turned and gilded bezel,
are gilded rosettes and between the body and base of the clock is further gilt decoration. To the sides of the case are diamond shaped mounts within which are four cherubs and a dog(?).
The surround to the circular glazed back door is engine turned.
On top of the case is a bronze cherub holding a gilded bow in one hand and an arrow in the other. Further arrows lie on top of the case. The backplate of the chain-fusee movement, which strikes the hours and halves on a bell, is signed by the maker within an oval cartouche.
Strike/silent regulation is actuated by a knob to one side of the case whilst another locks and unlocks the front the door.
The pendulum is beautifully executed, having a regulating nut roughly half way up its length to give easy access for regulation. Even a beat scale is provided.
The height of the clock, with and without the figure on top is 15"/10" (38/25.5cm)
