The finely chased ormolu case is dressed with 'Sevres' style hand decorated polychrome panels to the face and sides, depicting fisherfolk; the case rises from toupie feet, with fluted pilasters framing the face, with 'jewelled' borders, and gilt hands indicating the hours, delineated in Roman numerals; the two train movement has a Brocot escapement, enabling the eight day movement, and the hours are struck on a bell; the backplate is marked with the maker's sigil, and numbered; atop a Triton holding a bident rides a stylised dolphin.
