Heavily carved with large figural robed maidens seated on the top, between them they hold a long floral strand of garland which drapes under a gargoyle face and scrolled seashell carvings. The crest is heavily carved with a larger gargoyle face under a huge urn finial with lion heads and swirling floral filigree. The time piece has fancy brass hands, blue porcelain dial with white Roman numerals and a thick carved bezel. Time and bell strike French brass movement with a jeweled Brocot escapement and rack and snail striking mechanism. In excellent condition with a good original finish.
