This is a nice eight-day clock from the second quarter of the 19th century.

This was probably when these clocks were at the height of their popularity and when the mechanical design had been fully perfected.

This clock shows the date of the month and has a seconds dial, as well as showing the time.

The well-polished case is of good colour with the mahogany parts being attractively faded. The Arabic-style hour numerals on the dial are absolutely typical of the fashion of the 1830s.
