This beautiful Viennese carriage clock has an elaborate case out of fire-gilt bronze. On a base with bun feet are two ram heads, on which two birds are sitting. Between their wings they hold the finely engine turned case drum. The finial has the shape of a putto who is kneeling on a cushion. He is holding a laurel wreath over a glazed ormolu frame. Inside the frame is a miniature painting with the portrait of a lady. The movement with verge escapement is equipped with a Viennese grande sonnerie on wire gongs and also has an alarm on bell.
