The item is a wooden skeleton mantel clock. The clock measures 7 1/2 inches wide and 8 1/2 inches high. The clock takes a AA battery. Change it through the back. The clock comes with a engraving plate. We can engrave it here if you want or you can take it to your local jeweler. I do not charge to engrave it here. We will let you place it on the clock. I will provide a well cushioned box as well as directions in Spanish and English.
