Product Description

A moulded and engraved round base with inside bell and sound holes in the shape of archways supports the figures of Christ on the cross, the virgin Mary and John the Baptist. The cross has been engraved with a grained wood pattern; at the foot of the cross kneels the penitent Mary Magdalene, looking upward and raising her right arm, which she moves back and forth solemnly at the strike of the hour. A plate with the letters INRI sits high above the crucifix, just below the dial in the form of a sphere with equatorial hours and a static hand. The figures are positioned on a hinged, round plinth engraved with flowers and decorated with a rooster; the early movement with stackfreed mechanism and foliot is mounted underneath.
