8-day movement, rare mechanism with the arms of the lady showing the time.

This lovely clock has a spring-driven movement with a duration of 8 days, which means it needs to be wound once a week. The movement moves the hands of a gilt and engraved lady across the hour and minutes sectors. She stands in an arched canopy with three turned finials and polychrome enamel flowers on a blue ground. The stepped griotte rouge base is adourned with gilt brass mouldings and a relief. The clock is unusual and amusing because of the mechanism but also has a beautiful combination of colours.
