On a rectangular painted base on four ormolu feet, with an ormolu mounted yellow porcelain case with white enamel dial signed by Lesieur a Paris. Above the case sits a stepped rectangular painted hood with an ormolu woman representing Amor receiving a message of love from a carrier pigeon.
A very similar clock with the same porcelain case is illustrated in Encylopedie de La Pendule Francaise by Pierre Kjellberg. The illustrated clock has the same yellow porcelain which is signed “Manufacture du duc d’Angouleme”.
The Angouleme factory was started by the nephew of Louis XVI being the oldest son of the Compte d’Artois. The factory was in production from 1781 – 1793
