A night light clock in chiselled and gilded bronze.
It stands on a violet wood silk finished platted pedestal.
Open work, time runs from right to left.
The legs can be parted from the base and for travel accommodation they can be tucked under.
It chimes hours, and alarm clock and repeats the alarm.
The alarm-clock time can be set on the dial: it can be triggered by a spindle placed next to the wished hour.
A place on the top of the box is made to put a candle, allowing night reading
