This carriage clock with lions was made in Vienna in the early 19th century. The fire-gilt bronze case consists of a base with palmette frieze and hemispheric feet, on which rest two mat and gloss fire-gilt lion figures. On their backs they carry an elaborately engine turned clock drum with a vegetable decorated handle. The dial with Roman numerals is also engine turned. The movement with a verge escapement has a Viennese grande sonnerie on wire gongs, a repeater and an alarm on wire gong. A stroke of luck is the original leather case.
