The horns with their original, gilded paterae, rising up towards the central pediment with its brass and gilded ball and eagle finial. Below the fretwork panel are two further panels with carved dragons that look like Chinese dragons, Chinese dragons traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, the dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it. The glazed and crossbanded hood door retains its original handle and wavy old glass, and the door is flanked by reeded pillars at each side with gilded Corinthian capitals. The period two painted arched dial is in nice clean condition, the four corners and top arch having nicely painted floral scenes.

The 4 pillar, rack striking, 8 day duration movement is in original and condition, and good working order, chiming out the hours on a single bell. The clock is set up and keeping excellent time, but as with all antique clocks it would benefit from a clean and service at some time in the future.

This is a deliberate attempt to deceive, these items are all in my possession. They will ask you to send money to them, DO NOT, they do not have any goods to sell, you will never hear from them once you have paid. I only answer to emails that you send to me, and will never send emails to you offering to sell you goods at ridiculously low prices. If you receive one, please let me know and I will report it to eBay immediately. Because of these emails, I have now decided to make all my auctions private auctions so my customers will not be bombarded by these fraudulent people.
