The case, veneered in well figured tortoiseshell, has a drum shaped top which rests on a rectangular base supported by four small gilded feet with floral decoration. Applied to the front is a particularly fine gilded mount consisting of crossed staves terminating in cones with vine leaves entwined around them. To the bottom corners of the dial are delicate floral paterae.
A single train French movement is employed with silk suspension which is unusual in having a third larger plate to the rear, which has probably been fitted to exclude dust from the movement.
