A late 18th century white marble and gilt bronze temple shape mantel clock composed of two levels. The first one has the visible movement with double rotating dial, with Roman numerals for hours and Arabic for minutes, painted in black on white enameled cartridges. Four small white marble columns with ormolu Ionic capital and base resting on the circular base with four fluted feet support the dial. In the center, two doves rest on a bow and flowers on an altar. Openwork galleries decorate the circumference of two levels. The set decorated with friezes, garlands of pearls and fluted patterns is surmounted by a pinecone finial. The architectural structure of antique temple and the antiques ornaments are characteristic of this period.
