This clock has the extremely rare feature of a true enamel dial: only a couple of dozen are known with such dials owing to the fact that they were very difficult to make.

The well-painted dial is supported on a cast brass frame. Such painted enamel dials were made in only three colours: pink, blue and there is known to be a single example of a green-painted dial. The heavy oak case has typically Northern carving of high quality.

The clock will be accompanied by a slim booklet called "Faces of Mystery", which describes these rare clocks.
