When opened, the key can be used to wind the movement. The back has a wooden door that can be slid open to see the movement and pendulum.
Unfortunately, the bells are missing. The clock is 30 hour and runs strong and keeps accurate time. In the front, you can see fancy crafted ornaments, all around the clock.
The clock dial is brass. In the front, you can see an open window to see the pendulum moving.This clock was made in the early 19. Century, around 1810 - 1840. Id rate it very well-preserved for its age. This clock is in good working condition.
I tested the chime movement, it does work, just no bells. The previous owner put a tie on it so the chime movement wouldnt move.
