The case and dial were restored by John Glanville (previous owner) who resilivered the dial, and used transfer paper to copy design from a similar clock, and then lacquered the dial. Note. 'goldsmiths and silversmiths regent st london' is copied from this similar clock and was not the retailer of this example.
