This standing clock is formed of a gilt bronze mounted malachite case and is comprised of two components: a pedestal and a mantel clock, which both seamlessly combine to form a full-length standing clock. The mantel clock case is styled like a Classical amphora vase, which stands on a gilt bronze mounted waisted circular stem and foot. This foot stands on a podium, classically designed with clean lines and mounted with gilt bronze sculptural panels that complement the overall Classical feel and theme of the piece. The vase case is mounted with gilt bronze snake handles and topped with a gilt bronze finial.
The similarly decorated pedestal is rectangular in shape, comprising a malachite top supported by a gilt bronze capital and a malachite column shaft. The column sits upon a malachite base and is mounted on its four sides with Classical masks. The clock case is decorated with similar Classical motifs, most notably a full-length gilt bronze figure of Cupid, whose arrow acts as a hand for the unusual cylindrical movement of the clock clock.
