This is a walnut cased clock with a balcony rail all around, gold striping strategically placed around the case. It has a brass Seth Thomas pendulum, dial ring, gong stand, and pendulum hanger. This clock has the standard 8 day movement and strikes the Cathedral gong each hour. This clock has been in one family since 1890. We bought it from an 80 year old widow.
