This clock is a very dark stained clock making the porcelain part of the clock really pop. The clock is almost a black but is a dark dark brown. The top of the clock holds the monk and the bell. The top of the clock that holds the monk is almost designed like a temple around him. It is beautifully designed to complement the monk striking the bell. The monk has the only real color that appears on the clock. The color of his robe is red which stands out because the rest of the clock is dark brown and gold. The face of the clock is bright white with black letters and hands with a gold ring around the time. The gold designs of the clock around the whole clock really compliments the dark stain of the rest of the clock. The detailing with the gold accents makes this a beautiful clock. The bottom of the clock stands on four legs that that leaves about an inch space from the surface to the start of the front of the clock.
