This unique mantel clock was made in the last quarter of the 18th century in Regensburg/Germany and is by the clockmaker Joh. Christoph Seiffert. The case out of carved and gilt lime wood has a base with a semicircular curved central segment, which is decorated with ornamental patterns. Its surface is modelled after natural ground with rocks, on which strides a mighty carved lion. On his back he carries the case drum, which is ornamented with bead and reel motifs and laurel festoons. The finial has the shape of a miniature pagoda. The movement with Viennese grande sonnerie and repeater is also equipped with a reversing lever for petite sonnerie.
