The substantial well-cast and finished ormolu and patinated case depicts Cupid standing beside his bow and a female maiden clad in flowing drapery and holding the handle of a broken urn. The whole is surmounted by a spouting water fountain and supported by a variegated verde antico marble base with bun feet.
The fine white porcelain dial has black Roman numerals for the hours, cast ormolu hands and is signed ‘a Paris’.
The eight-day time and strike movement has the fast slow out the front, count-wheel striking on a bell, a flat bottom and still retains the original silk-thread suspension.
