Notes

Property of an Italian family It is interesting to note that the clock is inscribed with the name Shelagh, which comes from the roman Caelia which came from the name Caelius which means heavenly. The clock also has an enamel and gold cartouche on the top with the letter W matching to the outer box which is initialed CW with a princely crown.
