The clock set comprises a skeleton clock of gilded bronze in Arabesque style, together with the original matching gilded bronze candlesticks.
The clock stands proudly on four feet and a filigree base. The lovely detailed Arabesque dial has enamel numbers for hours and minutes. The case is topped by a filigree urn, the side side columns are topped by filigree obelisks.

Through the splendid filigree work you can see the fine skeletonised wheels of the movement. The movement constructed within an ‘I’ frame, has an anchor escapement and silk thread suspension.

The complementary candlesticks are 17cm high, 7cm wide and 7cm deep.
