It is finely modelled in gilt bronze with bold scrolling acanthus, swept 'C' scroll feet, fretted panels and featuring a charming figure of a cherub with palm branches to the top, an allegory for victory. Candelabra are conforming in style with bold asymmetric urns and and twirling acanthus arms. This is a beautifully made set, crisply modelled and finished. The dial is also gilt bronze with 12 individual enamel cartouches and original blued steel hands. The bezel is glazed with convex glass. The rear door is also glazed to allow the movement to be seen.
