Rare and nice collector's item. - According to Riefler documents, the dial with number 78 was foreseen for an oak case clock. Apparently this clock was not completed or delivered. According to the same documents, our clock with pendulum number 194 and escapement number 102, an air-tight glass vessel clock, originally had the dial number 74.
