This charming 8-day Swiss carriage clock is crafted of gilt bronze in an elegant Neoclassical style. These incredibly complex clock mechanisms were well suited for travel, for they operate without a pendulum. During the second half of the 19th century, carriage clocks such as this were considered scientific marvels in addition to being admired for their beauty and design.
