This clock set by Ferdinand Barbedienne (French, 1810-1892) comprises a central clock and a pair of flanking candelabra. The clock is set on a red, marble base on a triangular plan that is ornamented with egg and dart ormolu. This supports a full-length model of the Three Graces in ormolu, which is surmounted by a cercle tournant clock dial in ormolu, decorated with champleve enamel in arabesque designs and three goat-forms. Each of the flanking candelabra are set on square, red marble bases which support ovoid-form vases in ormolu decorated with champeve enamel in arabesque designs and twin acanthus-leaf form handles. The candelabra are surmounted by nine ormolu lights with stylized acanthus leaf drip pans.

The model of the Three Graces is signed 'F. Barbedienne. Fondeur' and stamped with Reduction Mécanique roundel. The candelabra are each signed 'F. Barbedienne' to the bases of the vases.
