The face is white porcelain with hand painted Arabic numerals and painted flowers in each corner. Fabricated by Ephraim Downes, Bristol CT. A fine example of an early American clock.
Dimension: 31" high x 16" wide x 5 " deep
Condition: The case is sturdy and in excellent condition for it's age. There is some crack veneer on the left pediment. There are no weights or pendulum.
