The clock in gilded bronze casing in the manner of Louis XVI from the Yellow Room has extensive crowning. In the upper part a wave motif dominates, whereas the bottom part, in the Regency style, is in the form of a Bandwerk ornament. On the white clock shield there are Roman hourly digits, whereas on the outer circumference there are Arabic minute digits. The side panels are filled with openwork plant ornamentation against a red background. The shield and the mechanism were created in the studio of the clockmaster Pierre Gille L’Ainé in Paris.
