**In very good condition. There is a vertical shrinkage crack to the front panel extending from the left foot up to the top of this panel. Retains its original movement with a beautifully painted face. Brass finials also appear to be original. Weights and pendulum are present as is the key to lock the door. Warm finish and patina - possibly original or an old refinish.
