Framed clock (Rahmenuhren)
As a typical example from that period, the clock has a glass casing that resembles a framed painting from the front. The casing is shaped in the classicist style, linking the ovule motif bordure, the weft of floral decorations and cornucopia along the petals which form the edge of the dial. The decorations are rendered in gilded gypsum. The dial is also decorated with floral engravings, simple clock hands and three openings for winding as well as an Roman numerals inner ring.
Through the oval opening edged with ornate motifs of an eagle and a vine, you can see the pendulum with a sun disk face relief. The clock mechanism consists of a spring with cross-beat escapement and repetition mechanism.
