The dial is an off white with black Roman numerals and an outer chapter ring. Brass moon hands.

This strikes on a bell. circa 1850's To the back of the case is a silk covered fretwork door. Some slight losses and repairs however this certainly does not detract from such a wonderful piece.

For over 125 years Charles Frodsham & Co. were responsible for the maintenance of the Royal antique clocks and remained the last independent clock-makers permitted to have workshops in Buckingham Palace.
