The asymmetrical gilt-bronze case is finely cast in the rococo style with scrolling foliate forms, surmounted by a putto figure beneath a pierced acanthus scroll. The white enamel dial has Arabic hours and quarters and is signed ‘P.Sormani, Paris’.

The clock has a twin barrel movement with a platform escapement and rack, striking on a bell.
