Description of the item

An attractive an rare clock of very high quality. They are given various names but the most often applied tag is the 'library' clock. The clock might therefore have been hung in a Gentleman's private library. It is a timepiece only (ie non-striking) so as not to disturb the reader.
A rare form and even rarer with just an 8" dial. All original components and fuly restored read to enjoy.
