The Viennese table clock with a height of 25 cm is due to its design as a flower basket a particularly rare and unusual work of art. The basket of flowers rests on a mahogany base surrounded by silver-plated metal. The wickerwork of the basket is very realistic executed, also in silvered metal. The clock case in the shape of a sunflower is made of silver, the dial of enamel. The rich flower and foliage are intricately made of brass and decorated with gemstones and colored beads.
