Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The gilt bronze pierced frame features two crowned phoenix birds flanking the skeletonised movement, and with a dragon pendulum suspended between the two. It is surmounted by a frame on which a basket of flowers apparently hangs and above it, a flaming urn. The frame is mounted on a heavily veined grey marble base on turned feet. The clock is a mere 4-inches in depth.
The 4-inch convex white enamel dial ring has an outside minute track, and gilt engine-turned inner ring.
The French 8-day open movement with silk suspension is outside countwheel striking on a large bell, with a good clear ring.
