This massive gilt-bronze, silvered and white marble annular dial clock features Urania, the muse of astronomy.
She indicates the time on the single multipiece annular ring which rotates in the silvered and star studded sphere.
Housed in the sphere is the eight-day time-only movement with a balance wheel escapement. The top half of the sphere is removed to wind and regulate the clock.
This clock is surprisingly large and impressive when viewed in person. The original by Lepaute is in Le Chateau de Fontainebleau and is pictured in their catalogue.
