This is the decorative surround of an old English antique wall clock. The octagonal shape is beautifully inlaid into the rosewood veneer of the wooden casing. The Mother of Pearl inlay is all intact and in superb condition.
Popular in Victorian times to embellish expensive mechanical wall clock.
The original clock had a backbox which contain the large brass plated, which is missing, but nowadays is unnecessary as we have fitted modern quartz movement with the traditional style of hand so the clock never needs winding and keeps perfect time for 1 or 2 years with a AA battery.
The off white dial has classic Roman numerals in exactly the same style you would have found in Victorian times.
A round glass is fitted into a hinged brass bezel which fits over the dial and hands to give protection.
A really interesting decorative clock as a one -off.
