8-day movement with very rare butterfly automaton, ormolu case.

This fine clock has an enamel chapter ring with Arabic numerals which is signed Inv. Fet. Deverberie et Comp. Rue Barrette A Paris. In front of the blue enamel centre there is a pierced ormolu butterfly connected to the going train of the spring driven 8-day movement. Thus making the butterfly turn when the clock runs. The movement strikes the hours fully on a bell and gives a single strike for the half hours. The chapter ring forms the wheel of an ormolu chariot surmounted by a classical lady, and being drawn by putti flying on clouds. The whole is placed on a rectangular base decorated with a relief of further putti with garlands and clouds and placed on claw feet.
