The central enamel clock dial is set into a veined white marble cylindrical pedestal on a shaped grey marble plinth. The clock dial has Roman numerals and is signed 'Deglane, ÉLÈVE DE LÉPINE', translating as 'Deglane, student of Lepine', the 18th Century master watchmaker Jean-Antoine Lepine (French, 1720-1814). The white marble pedestal is mounted with a quiver of arrows and roses, and flanked with full length ormolu figures of Venus and Cupid, Roman gods of love and desire.
Venus and Cupid are shown with a pair of doves - symbols of love in Roman mythology and often depicted alongside Venus - mounted on top of the case, and Cupid is shown with a further quiver of arrows at his feet. The grey marble plinth contains further ormolu mounts showing draped floral garlands and foliate scrolls, and is mounted on six beaded toupie feet.
