The key hole has a lovely diamond shape of inlay. The base is is again beautifully inlaid with stringing in a square and with cross banding to the outside and a pretty flame mahogany to the centre whilst the front corners are canted. The base is then raised on lovely delicate ogee bracket feet. The eight-day movement has a broken arch painted face with rolling moon and subsidiary second and date dials. The dial is set out with Roman numerals with small Arabic numerals above and the four corners are beautifully adorned with scenes depicting the four seasons. To the centre of the dial is the centre date and it is also beautifully painted with a Royal Court scene with a gentleman on the throne wearing a plume of feathers and being knelt to by a courtier holding a scroll whilst other members of the court look on. The clock has the most very pretty fingers. The moon disc is lovely and in addition to the two moons has a lovely cottage scene and a galleon. The dial bears the makers name Furnival OLDHAM.
