This grand and impressive clock set is the work of the famed French maker Henri Picard, who was celebrated for the regal charm and ceremonial splendour of his creations, of which this piece is no exception.

The set comprises a central clock and two flanking candelabra, all cast in intricately decorated gilt bronze and featuring complimenting Neoclassical style motifs. The central clock features a central, circular white enamel dial, set with black Roman numerals, within a pediment shaped case surmounted by a pine cone finial. All around, the clock is decorated with scrolling foliage and bows, and mounted to either side with twin caryatids, from which trail leafy garlands onto the oval clock base.

The pair of candelabra, similarly decorated, are centred with twisted, fluted urns, which are mounted to each side with twin caryatids and trailing garlands to the oval bases. Issuing from the top of the urns are central columns, upon which are set five lights on scrolled, leafy branches with drip pans. The central upper lights feature removable stoppers surmounted with pine cone finials. The base of one candelabra is signed 'H. Picard'.
