The magnificent mantel clock by the well-known Viennese clockmaker Anton Lis(z)t has an elaborate ormolu case. On the octagonal base with fire-gilt bronze mounts are two splendid engine turned baluster columns with Corinthian capitals. They carry a semi-circular arch with croquets and an ogee arch finial in the style of Laxenburg Gothic. The engine turned case drum seems to float between the columns. The open work bob of the mock gridiron pendulum enhances the impression of elegant lightness.
