What does this mean?

This is an antique, 19th century, Victorian era, about 1870 - 1880, black lacquer and abalone inlay papier mache wall clock. The enameled clock face has the name Diot on it and the location of A Sennecey-le-Grand in Bourgogne, France. There are only references to a Parisian clockmaker firm of Diot et Gaboy. A clockmaker or firm by this name in Sennecey-le-Grand is not listed. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.

What is the size of this and also please add a photo of the sides and backside? If the clockworks are accessible from the backside, also check the works for any maker marks too.
