Another reproduction clock from the Regency period. They are often called a chamfer top clock. This is made for local fiddle back Jarrah, and houses another Hermle ting-tang movement. The chamfer top can be removed to access the key. The sides have perforated brass sheets backed with velvet to let out the sound of the bells. The case is decorated with inlaid brass strings and dots, Lions head handles and a traditional pineapple on the top. The recipients initials are in mother of pearl on the front.
