Brass side fret panels with red fabric background which has been replaced. The front vertical corner edges have brass inlaid as can be seen. These lead down to a waisted Rosewood moulding and the lower base standing on bun feet. As to be expected on a clock approaching 200 years old their are some stress cracks along the grain run in the veneer, and their is also a tiny piece of veneer missing top right rear corner on the arch top (see picture). Rear door to the clock is glazed and is lockable with the key supplied. One hinge has been replaced and the other requires attention as the door is a little proud on the lock side. As can be seen their is a clock label inside the case, Monks of Camberwell, probably from a service. The 8 inch silvered and engraved dial is enclosed by a brass, glazed convex glass bezel that is released by turning the key in the side key hole. Small scratch and some edge chips to glass.
