French skeleton time piece under a glass dome.
made for the "The Grate Exhibition 1851"
movement 8 day going barrel with silk suspension.
the is a beautiful example of a skeleton tome piece with lots of interesting history this clock would have been something to see at the exhibition and would have been on view along with its maker in "The Crystal Palace" Hyde park London from 1st of May to the 15th October 1851.
unfortunately the maker did not singe his work and thus we don't know who he was.
It is also more than possible this time piece is a one off.
