Condition report: 

The case: rubbing to the gilding of the mounts with some oxidisation, tarnishing, dirt and dust. Cover to the movement is missing and replaced with a cut out brass example which is screwed in. 

The Cupid figure is a little loose as is his quiver and bow. 

The dial: Rubbing to some of the gilding on the porcelain, especially around the minute marks to the outer ring. 

The movement: this will need to be checked by a clock specialist.
