This three piece clock set is truly a masterwork of 19th Century metalwork, and features wonderfully complementing silvered bronze and ormolu which are offset by the sumptuous malachite veneer, which was added later.

The central clock is surmounted by a silvered bronze figure of a woman in Classical dress, seated, as she looks mysteriously upward. Below, the rectangular-form clock case is crafted in malachite, and mounted all around in ormolu and silvered bronze scrolling details.. The central circular dial features ormolu Roman numerals, and is set upon the square apron front of the stepped base, which sits on four silvered bronze feet. To the side, the plinth is marked 'Hi Dumaige 1875' by the skilled sculptor and bronzier of the Belle Epoque, Etienne Henri Dumaige (French, 1830-1888).

The pair of flanking candelabra are of equally majestic design, featuring similarly decorated square, stepped malachite bases which sit on paw feet and are mounted all around in ormolu and silvered bronze. The support for each of the candelabra takes the form of a standing silvered bronze figure of a woman in Classical dress, looking downward as with both hands she holds aloft the candelabra lights. The lights are set onto a silvered bronze central support, from which extend intricately cast ormolu branches, which hold seven silvered bronze lights with drip pans.
