I didn't buy my clock from Play.com I paid double the the price in a shop in Whitby, but it is exactly the same. I love this clock, it is plastic which i wasn't expecting as it looked so expensive hanging there from a glass shelf in the shop window. I have had comments from everyone visiting my house as to how lovely this clock is. My grandma loved it so much that i have bought one from Play.com for her christmas stocking filler. Buy it you won't be disappointed!
