A very decorative and unusual plate in the form of an encased 24 hour clock face with, at its centre, a map of the Northern hemisphere. This example is of State 2 of the plate, with the privilege line added. The clock face also incorporates the signs of the zodiac and has embellished corner decoration and is bordered by a lengthy explanation of the clock's purpose. The map, showing Asia, Europe and North America gives prominence to the vast areas of unknown regions between Japan and and Hudson's Bay with a large California island. A good example with bright original colour.
