An Extremely Rare and Unusual Boulle Clock

I have had this clock for a very long time.

The clock has a porcelain face with painted black numerals and gold painted hands. Below the clock face is a pendulum that moves easily back and forth. When the clocks lays down, the pendulum falls back into the clock and you can't see it (Photo #2). Only the front of the clock displays the Boulle decoration. But the reverse of the design is rare. You have a gold background and the rosewood shows the design. I might mention that a circular design is found around the clock's face A scalloped pediment appears on top of the clock. Only the front has decorative work, the other three sides have beautiful rosewood of very fine quality.

NOW FOR THE BEST FEATURE- IN THE LAST PHOTO, YOU CAN SEE A KNOB ON THE SIDE OF THE CLOCK AND WHEN PULLED DOWN, YOU CAN HEAR IT RING!
