The cabinetmaker made the case of this longcase clock as narrow as possible. Moreover, he placed an irregularly shaped, asymmetrical mirror on its front to counterbalance, as it were, the clock’s straight, angular form.The clock has a movement with fourteen melodies, and it shows the date, day of the week, month, phases of the moon and time of high tide.
