English ivory strung blond tortoiseshell mantel clock.

A very fine quality English ivory strung blond tortoiseshell dome topped mantel clock of the Edwardian period. Set upon ivory bun feet the clock has a stepped base and is of domed form. The tortoiseshell veneers which have been applied to all visible sides of the clock including the back are of a beautifully figured blond colour. The clear and perfect white enamel dial is set under convex glass within a brass bezel. The dial has both Roman and Arabic numerals and blued steel hands. The eight day movement is behind a glazed and hinged bezel and is wound and the hands set from behind. This gives a dial uninterupted by winding holes. The movement is French and the timekeeping is controlled by the original cylinder escapement. English circa 1905. 8.25 inches high by 5.25 inches wide by 3 .25 inches deep
