It is beautifully made in ormolu (fire gilded bronze doré) mounted with exquisite Sèvres style porcelain. The porcelain has a Bleu Celeste ground with delicately painted flowers, an exotic bird and cupid with his flaming torché. To the top is a motif of cupid, a flaming torché and a quiver of arrows. The dial is porcelain enamel on copper with blue lettering and beautifully fretted gilt brass hands and convex glass. It is signed by the case maker André Hoffmann. The rear door is also glazed to allow the movement to be seen. The French movement is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker.
