This Rococo console clock was made in the mid-eighteenth century by a Stockholm-based clockmaker in collaboration with an enameller. The high-quality clockwork is original and displays the careful ornamentation on every mechanism that was typical of the day. The casing is decorated on both sides with vegetal enamel paintings.
