An early 30 hour clock with a 10 inch dial Calendar, and single hand. I believe that the name and date on the dial where added later
The reverse of the cartouche are the names of a couple. The cartouche must have been turned round at a later date and re engraved
These clock were called marriage clocks as they were presented to newly weds.
