The bezel is surrounded by a pearl and at the cushioning, foliage ends in a flower bud.
Originally, this clock rested on a veneer base and was located on top of a Louis XVI cardboard box.
The white enameled dial is signed by "Etienne Lenoir", master watchmaker in Paris, based on Quai des Orfèvres.
The original movement strikes the hours and half-hours as it passes. Wire suspension.
