The ebony-veneered case has a so-called domed top, a design which became popular in the Charles II period (from 1675 onwards). The case is adorned with repousse brass ornaments and rests on gilt-brass bun feet. It is surmounted by a brass carrying handle of typical shape. There are silk-backed pierced ebony sound frets to the front, whilst the sides are glazed. The square brass dial has a silvered Roman chapter ring. In the corners are cast brass winged-cherub spandrels, whilst the matted centre has false pendulum and date apertures. The time is indicated by a pair of period pierced blued-steel hands on the black Roman chapter ring with half-our, quarter-hour, 7½-minute, Arabic five-minute and minute divisions. The spring-driven, eight-day, twin gut-fusee movement has a going train with verge escapement and short pendulum with knife-edge suspension, enclosed by a lovely back-cock apron. The internal rack striking train indicates the hours on a bell. In addition, it has unusual pull quarter repeat on three bells, sounding all four quarters rather than three. The backplate is extremely finely engraved and signed by the maker within an engraved cartouche: Jonat Lowndes London.
