The face is a silvered metal dial with engraved black wax roman numerals also featuring ormolu cherubs in each corner on a black velvet background mentioned for sake of absolute accuracy there is a very slight scratch on the dial near 6 o clock I've tried to picture this but its very slight unnoticeable really.The movement is driven by a double barrel spring mechanism regulated with a pendulum and strikes the hours and once every half hour it is stamped with a "Medalle de Bronze" winner for a Paris Exhibition Circa 1875. The bronze gilded hood features hanging laurels as well as four bronze finials. The overall style of this clock is emulating Joseph Knibb who was an English clockmaker from the previous century. The condition of this clock is extremely good and the movement is running strong and remarkably accurate for a piece of this age it runs for approx 10 days on a full wind, the only sign of wear is on the very top flat of the bronze hood where it has been polished over its nearly 150 year life. The clock is approx 17 inches high and 10 inches wide at the base very pleasing proportions while still presenting a bold statement, a lot of bracket clocks are so large they do not suit a modern mantle piece this clock will sit comfortably on a 6 and a half inch shelf... it also features glass portals at the sides as well as ornate hands and decoration this item oozes quality and would fit in an antique or contemporary home setting equally well.
