This three-piece garniture is constituted of a central clock and a pair of complementary flanking candelabra. The clock features an enamel dial with Arabic numerals, painted garlands draped about the numerals, and lyre-shaped hands. The dial is signed ‘A. Grinand / Médaille d’Or / Paris’. The dial is within a drum case that is encompassed by a jewelled surround. The drum sits within the main body of the clock, which is of pink marble and takes the distinctive form of a lyre. The lyre clock body is surmounted by cross quivers in gilt bronze (ormolu). Gilt bronze features strongly within the overall decorative scheme of the clock: gilt bronze beading, lyre strings, garlands, and various other foliate motifs are mounted upon the body. The body of the clock sits upon a pink marble ovoid base, which stands on four gilt bronze bun feet.
The candelabra, each featuring three lights, are similarly decorated. They are formed of pink marble, standing on circular pink marble bases, and mounted with gilt bronze motifs throughout. The candle holders of each candelabrum, which are styled into flower buds, spring from foliate styled branches.
