The style is typical of French gothic, with lions masks, hairy paw feet, flowing foliage and surmounted by a bell. The body of the clock is fretted and modelled as a niche embedded in the overgrown foliage.
The matching candelabra are 6 light, the centre having a finial attached. The bases are modelled to compliment the design of the clock.
