This exquisite clock is a miniature version of the famous ‘Passemant astrological clock’ created in the mid-18th Century for King Louis XV of France. The original model was crafted by the engineer Claude-Siméon Passemant in collaboration with the clockmaker Louis Dauthiau, and sculptor Jean-Jacques Caffiéri, who designed the case. The Passemant clock is today displayed in the petit appartement du roi in the Palace of Versailles, in France.

The gilt bronze (ormolu) clock features an elongated body with an arched top, crowned by a floral finial. At the centre of top, there is a circular white enamel dial, with black Roman Numerals and Arabic Numbers. This is contained behind a glass lens, within a foliate frame. The clock body stands on four tall cabriole legs, which are set on hoof feet. The clock is elaborately decorated with scrolled acanthus leaves, foliage swags, stylised floral motifs and cartouches.
