In turn, fixed to a pleasing matching and splayed base which is further, stood upon a rectangular moulded, water gilded wooden base.

* This is an attractive little clock of high quality and the ornate design follows onto the back of the case. The original gilding is in very good condition with highlighted areas that 'glint' in the light. The photographs cannot accurately demonstrate the colour and appearance and the wooden base has worn to show the attractive under-colour of the bole used in water gilding. It is rare to find examples with their base and in such good condition and the smaller size of this piece adds to its appearance. It can be placed on or off its base as a matter of preference.
