The circular clock dial itself is inscribed with Roman numeral indices and mounted within a vase shaped case. The vase is decorated and painted in the identifiable Sèvres style, with parcel gilt details and a painted scene of flying putti on a cobalt blue porcelain ground.

The flanking candelabra are of conforming style, each featuring a similar vase shaped body, painted instead with a fête galante scene and mounted either side with satyr head masks. From the top of the vase, each candelabrum features seven ormolu light branches, with foliate and scrolled detailing.

Each vase’s painted scene is signed ‘A. Daret’.
