Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The decoration on the case of this clock is in a particularly good state of preservation, just being subject to gentle rubbing over the years. There is an acorn finial to the top of the case and a further 4 finials to the top of the breakarch, which rest on decorated wooden blocks. It still retains its original wooden frets immediately above the breakarch.
The decorated sides to the case are glazed to display the movement and there are substantial carrying handles. The full length caryatids to the four corners are well executed and tone in well with the rest of the case. The overall decoration, which has survived over the centuries remarkably well, features people and floral decoration to all four sides.
The 7.5" breakarch dial has interesting and well executed floral spandrels to the four corners and on either side of the breakarch, which contains the strike/silent regulation. Below 12 is
an aperture for the mock bob, which has a silver plaque behind it bearing the makers name. Above 6 o’clock is an aperture for the date. The backplate is finely engraved and contains Eastlands bold signature to the centre.
