The 11 inch square brass dial is mounted with cherub head and foliate spandrels, silvered chapter ring and subsidiary seconds ring below XII. The dial centre is finely matted with ringed winding holes and an aperture to view the day of the month. The dial plate has delicate foliate engraving between the spandrels and the chapter ring is signed by the maker between VII and V. The blued steel hands are finely pierced and faceted and the dial centre is engraved with a Tudor Rose
The high quality 8-Day duration movement has five pillars and the wheel work appears original throughout. The hours are sounded on a bell via an outside locking plate.
