The case depicts an ormolu cherub holding a patinated drapery supported by a silvered column. The whole stands on a patinated base with ormolu mounts that include cast rectangular feet and a recessed applique that depicts a reclining cupid.
The cast ormolu dial has a smooth recessed interior chapter, black Roman numerals for the hours, steel Breguet-style hands and is signed by the maker, ‘HÈZÉ A PARIS’.
The eight-day time and strike movement has a steel suspension and count-wheel striking on a bell. The cast bi-metallic pendulum has a decorative ormolu bob and has a screwed fast/slow adjustment.
