The canted corner figured base with a raised single moulding and shaped bracket feet. The swan-neck pediment hood with ornate brass paterae and three cast brass finials, beneath boxwood fretted "Edinburgh panels".

The original brass lock and brass hinges to the trunk door.
An elegant case in fine original condition with excellent quality veneers of good colour and patination.
The arched painted dial finely executed with bold Arabic numerals and an outer minute track with Arabic numerals to the quarters and snowflake markings.
