Description
Inscriptions/Signature

In the center is a large clock face with Roman numerals. A man with rosy cheeks who wears a tan uniform and brimmed hat, is grasping the minute hand of the clock and looks to his proper left. Surrounding the clock face is a pattern of two fruit trees with flowers and grass on the ground. The background is light blue, surrounded by a green border. The title is printed in a rectangle below the image.
