20 inches, excluding the dome.
This timepiece has a multi-tiered circular base with a recessed centre for the barometer and behind it a thermometer with engraved and gilded surround. Three circular columns rise up from the base and converge at the top in a plate which carries the half seconds beating pendulum.
The silvered brass dial is host to delicate Roman numerals, and is signed at the top by Phillips, 23 Cockspur St. A large seconds ring features below the 12’oclock which employs Roman numerals. The centre of the dial has fine floral engraving and delicate spade hands.
The movement is in two parts; the lower section carries the spring barrel, great wheel, and the rest of the train, whilst the second part is for the dead beat escapement and motion work.
