English Sir Walter Scott Memorial Skeleton Clock
Sir Walter Scott was a famed Scottish author. A monument was constructed in his honor during the second half of the 19th century in Edinburgh, Scotland, and is the inspiration for this clock.
The clock resides under a glass dome on a wood base. Sir Walter Scott and his beloved dog, Maida, sit below an engraved dial. An eight day, two train chain fusée movement keeps the time, and a hammer strike on a coil gong marks the hour.
