The hunting themed clock set comprises a central clock and a pair of flanking candelabra. The clock is surmounted by a patinated bronze figure of a bearded hunter, who holds an ormolu gun and horn and lies across an ormolu landscape with a dog. The clock case is of broken pediment form, and the circular dial is set to the centre, bordered in beaded ormolu and featuring black Roman numerals on a white face. To either side of the clock face the pediment is set with malachite. The clock case is set on a highly detailed ormolu base, featuring a central ormolu arrangement of hunting paraphernalia below the face, and steps decorated with foliate forms. The scrolled clock feet are disguised behind a fox head and a boar head in ormolu.

The candelabra feature similarly decorated circular malachite bases with ormolu hunting mounts. Atop the bases, one patinated bronze figure is shown holding a bow and the other holds a gun and sword. Each figure supports an ormolu staff, terminating in a five light candelabrum. Each candelabrum features a central ormolu mount of hunting paraphernalia, from which issue five curled foliate branches with lights and drip pans, all surmounted by an ormolu eagle finial.
