Here is a spectacular, large and very attractive desk or shelf decoration. Really a watch (lever escapement, no pendulum), but as often is the case with desk watches: these items are often called clocks. Here it is easy to understand because of the size of the thing: height 29 cm, diameter 25,5 cm and base 13×6,5 cm. The base is heavy and solid, adding a luxurious touch to this early version. (Later versions with electric or quartz driven movements are simpler and not desirable in our opinion).
