This majestic clock set combines the luxurious emerald tones of malachite with gleaming ormolu mounts. The clock exhibits an elegant Neoclassical style design, which was popular under the reign of King Louis XVI of France and enjoyed a revival during the 19th Century. This clock set was made by Toulouse-based French clockmakers Roussy Hger in the 19th century, with the malachite veneer added later.

The set comprises a central mantel clock and a pair of flanking urns. The central clock features a large, rectangular form base set upon scrolling ormolu feet, which leads up to a curvaceous arch that is mounted with flowers and small putto in ormolu. The circular clock dial is suspended from the centre of the arch, and features white enamel roundels with black Roman numerals set onto the alabaster face, which is painted with two cherubs and signed 'Roussy Hger A Toulouse' after the maker. The dial is surmounted with an ormolu mounted urn, and hung with a central lozenge-form pendulum. The movement of the clock is stamped 'Ls Roussy / Arcades du capitole 12 / A Toulouse'.

The pair of flanking urns feature similar Neoclassical style decorations, and are set onto square-form stepped bases mounted with foliate ormolu decorations and set onto scrolling ormolu feet. The urns are of tapered form with large, bulbous lids, and feature twin ormolu handles hung with beading and surmounting ormolu figures of full-length Classical style women.
