Questions about this piece?


The clock is raised on a rectangular silver base, set above four bun feet. The surface of the base is profusely adorned with polychrome champlevé enamel wrought into scrolling floral and foliate forms. Atop the base sits an elliptical podium, the sides of which are decorated with champlevé enamel and the top inset with a shaped piece of lapis lazuli. Atop the lapis lazuli kneel two angels, the angels arranged back-to-back with a scrolled support between them. This support holds the clock drum.

The circular drum contains an incised silver dial with Roman numerals contained by individual enamel cartouches. The top of the drum is set with a silver drape-form finial, the voids of which are decorated with rich blue enamel. Perhaps most strikingly about the clock, the silver throughout is jewelled: from the angels below to the face of the clock drum to the drape finial above, the silver is studded with polychrome gemstones. The entire assemblage is wonderfully ornate and materially rich, demonstrating the very best of late 19th Century Viennese design.

While the clock is Viennese, the movement, from earlier in the 19th Century, is French.
