Michelez a Paris.
The large urn-form ormolu case has numerous mounts including two handles that terminate in animal heads.
The finely lettered porcelain dial is signed Michelez, Rue St. honore No. 128 à Paris on the front, Dub 849 on the back, and has cast ormolu hands.
The eight-day two-train movement strikes on a bell, is of exceptional quality, and still retains its original silk-thread suspension.
Michelez was a student of Breguet and produced clocks which were of the highest quality. He is listed as working at Rue St. Honore 1820-1830.
Dub was the signature of Dubuisson - one of the most famous enamellers of the period.
