The unusual features of this case clock are exhibited by the contrasting of wood color, wood position, and uniqueness of inlays and types of veneers used. Inlays range from delicate satinwood curves to ebony and satinwood Greek Key design. The ratio of hood to case to base is expertly proportioned by this famous clock maker. His attention to detail and execution is unmatched. This is one of his finest creations. In each section of the clock he masterfully contrasts oak and mahogany to its best application. The hood section combines classical elements of turned mahogany columns fitted with brass capitols. The swan shaped pediments with rosettes are interrupted by graceful scallops centered with a ‘key’ adorned by a Grecian style urn of mahogany. The face of the dial is a combination of brass and silvered brass with applied Roman numerals. Included in the hood section is a minute dial and a half hour demilune arc. The demilune arc is backed by a circulating disc hand-painted with a country scene. Attention is called to the center section of the case by the delicately scalloped overlay light oak door, flanked by chamfered corners inlaid with satinwood string. The striking contrast in species and color of wood, types of veneers, and varied dramatic inlay types contributes to the thought given to detail by the cabinet maker. The base of the clock is handsomely supported by graduated ogee oak bracket feet. The face is accented by contrasting the light oak panel with dark mahogany banding. The Base is set apart from the midsection by a crown mold of oak against the mahogany.
