Clock topper is a Greek or Roman classical woman, dressed in long robes, seated on an ornate bench. She has been re gilt to match the gilding on the metal trimmings of the clock, restored to the original antique gold finish, with metal leaf, which retains its luster and will not turn brown (as gold paint does after a couple of years). She is then given a light antique protective finish. She is in perfect condition with no damage.
Dimensions; 6.5 inches high, 6 inches long.
Included with the clock are instructions for setting up and maintaining it.
