Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This fine clock has a gilt-bronze case decorated all over with champlevé enamel. The case is surmounted by an urn finial and has scrolling feet. The circular dial with Arabic numerals and pierced blued steel hands (eight day 1/2 hour striking movement).
Champlevé enamelling, is similar to cloisonné in that the enamel is applied to discrete cells separated by metal. However, in champlevé, cells or troughs are cast into or cut away from the metal base, leaving a raised metal line between the cells which forms the outline of a design. The cells are then filled with molten or powdered glass and fired.
