The brass mounts are extremely decorative with foliate caryatids framing the corners, swags along the bell top and sun bursts with a central putti head to the side frets.

The seven inch (18 cm) wide break arch brass dial is mounted with a silvered chapter ring, silvered strike/silent ring in the arch and Rococo spandrels. Beneath 12 o’clock and within the matted center, is a recessed silvered cartouche signed by the maker.

The eight day duration twin fusee movement has five pillars with verge escapement and rack strike sounded on a bell. The back plate and brackets are engraved in a floral design.
