Ottoman Clock

A very talented and cultured Turkish lady recently lost her husband. Since then, she seems to be busy planning her own departure once she has got rid of all her money and possessions. She gave me this clock. It works, except that I have not put the workings together. I had it renovated, though, because the casing is so pretty. I love the Arabic numbers too. But every time I look at it, I remember the reason why I have it, and that makes me sad. So many people love and admire this lady. How sad that she might deprive us all of her presence.
