A Frisian tail clock is pendulum clock with an anchor escapement, which was predominantly produced in Frisia from 1770 to circa 1890. The clocks owe their name to the long wind case in which the pendulum is placed. Frisian tail clocks are made of oak panels or elm wood, which ensure that the pendulum could swing to and fro undisturbed. The corners of the hand-painted dial displays images of the four seasons. The Goddess Flora is located on the top left as a representation of spring, Ceres represents summer on the top right, Pomona or Bacchus represent autumn on the bottom right, and Vesta represents winter with fire on the bottom left.
The clock has a day indicator and a Moon mechanism.
The right window pane has a crack.
The clock runs fine and the day and moon phase work accurately.
