A fancy miniature neo-Gothic-style table clock
Case: brass, firegilt, polychrom enamelled, 4 bun feet. Dial: enamel. Movm.: rectangular brass full plate movement, 1 barrel, short pendulum.

The turrets and spires used to embellish this exquisite, neo-Gothic-style table clock are reminiscent of a fairytale castle. Front and sides of the compact body are decorated with arches and twisted pilasters in the corners. The dial on the front has a bright blue enamel chapter ring with neo-Gothic-style, radial Arabic numerals. The same colour blue but with polychrome enamel flowers on gold ground is repeated on the sides and the back. The back is hinged to reveal the movement. At the very top sits a cupola with four ogival-shaped dormer windows and a frieze portraying a stylized rope and a gold circlet of applied gold pearls; the lantern finial is also decorated with gold pearls.
