The clock is raised by fine circular mottled ormolu feet below the half round base with lovely elegant fluted and beaded ormolu bands. At the center are four striking lightly tapered columns with mottled plinths and capitals with beautiful swaging chains and tassels hanging from a Coeur de Rai band and centering the stunning sunburst designed pendulum. Above a row of richly chased acorn finials is the white enameled clock face with Arabic numerals and a fine beaded bezel with finely detailed berried laurel garlands leading up each side in a superb satin and burnished all below the most decorative urn of prosperity with scrolled handles and the eternal fire.

The circular white Carrara marble central column supports display mottled reeded top caps with a striking baluster shaped urn finial with the eternal flame and flanked by most elegant scrolled arms adorned with large acanthus leaves and berried accents leading to beaded candle cups.
