The front is adorned with decorative ormolu mounts that include winged griffins and scrolling foliage, a white porcelain dial with Lepine-style hands and a bell struck by a torsioned hammer.
The spring-driven time and strike 8-day movement has finely-cut and finished wheel-work, a single-armed pinwheel escapement, the pendulum suspended by a knife-edge suspension, the screwed beat adjustment on the crutch and a strike train that is incorporated into the time train and powered by a small automatically wound spring.
The whole stands on a red variegated marble base and is fitted into a purpose made glazed case with a felt covered gilt base.
Seems to run and strike when wound.
