Made of dark brown wood.  The clock front is framed glass, 33 cm high by 15 cm wide etched with palms in planters on each side and a hanging basket containing a plant, suspended from arched bamboo, in the centre.  Below looks like what could be a railing.

The back is nailed shut.

The clock mechanism is accessed through the glass front.  On the left is the pin to open.

The clock face is an off-white/ivory circle with black Roman numerals.  The outer border has sixty rectangles to show minutes.  Under the area of 7 o’clock and 5 o’clock is “MANUFACTURED BY THE ANSONIA CLOCK CO, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.”

Through the VIII and the IIII are holes for the clock key.

Under the point where the hour hand and the minute hand are attached is “TRADE MARK.” Inside, are the pendulum, unattached, the key, and a curved tool.
