The original signed painted Roman dial has a minute track framed by sprays of flowers to the corners.

Matching gilt moon hands.

The twin fusee movement has an anchor escapement, and is rack striking on a bell. It is signed to the dial Frodsham, Gracechurch Street, London. There is a trip repeat cord to repeat the strike of the last hour.
