Pretty full turned columns flank the hood door.The hood door is complete with it's lock which is operated by a key which also operates the trunk door. If we then move down to the trunk it has a wonderful full length door with an inset panel. The door is also complete with it's lock and key which also works the hood door. The trunk door is flanked by canter corners. Finally the base has a lovely panel and is raised on a nicely shaped plinth base. The eight-day movement is nice quality and is happily ticking and chiming away. On the inside of the door is a label which reads'SUPPLIED BY WILSON & HARWOOD 26 MARKET ST.
