D465 This carriage clock, which is gilded, strikes and repeats the hours on a gong and is also provided with an alarm. The dial and side panels, which are silvered, are probably some of the finest we have seen.

Delicate black Roman numerals are used against the silvered surround. To the bottom of the front panel a couple are featured with a young man offering a bouquet of flowers to a girl. There are insects flying at the top of the dial. On one side panel a girl is featured wearing a pink dress with hollyhocks around her whilst on the other side a girl dressed in yellow, green and purple is writing a message on a tree.

The clock rests on an ebony base which bears a silver presentation plaque on which is engraved:-
