This very early mantel clock in the rare form of an obelisk on a narrow and long pedestal is also distinguished by its indications. It was created in Austria around 1795/1800. The veneered fruit wood is ebonized and polished and decorated with carved and gilt wooden mounts. The three dials are made of enamel and show beside the regular time also the date, the month and the day of the week. The clock has an anchor escapement, a Viennese grande sonnerie on bells, a repeater, a turn-off for strike and an alarm on bell.
