The silvered dial is signed ‘Vulliamy, London’ and surrounded by a turned ormolu bezel mounted in a black marble drum below a finely chased eagle astride flaming branches. The clock stands on a stepped black marble plinth, with a beautifully chased monumental lion at each side. 
The 8-day timepiece movement features Vulliamy’s typical half-deadbeat escapement with rise and fall pendulum regulation on a pivoted bridge above the plates. The backplate is signed ‘Vulliamy, London, No. 1921’.
This is the only known eagle and lions mantel clock by Vulliamy on this large scale, suggesting that it was a special commission for the original owner.
