Perrache a Paris

A wall-mounted gilt bronze clock, with an enamelled dial, is marked Perrache à Paris on the back plate and is numbered from I – XII in Roman numbers for the hours and from 5 – 60 in Arabic numbers for the minutes.  The upper section shaped as a curvilinear entablature, decorated with exquisite ormolu flowers and leaves, is surmounted with a cherub.  The lower section ends with an irregular triangular form of volutes and C-scrolls and further ormolu flowers.
