A work of exceptional detail, this magnificent Viennese clock takes the art form of enameling to new heights. The elaborately fashioned timepiece rests atop the head of a soldier, who stands on a pedestal populated by sphinxes. Exceptional details encase the entire piece, from the rooster finial to the gem-studded base. A hand-painted portrait of the heroic soldier on the reverse completes this stunning piece.

Particularly popular during the 19th century, Viennese enamels are considered some of the finest ever made, and Vienna has been widely celebrated as the enameling center of Europe. To find an item of this quality, perfectly paired with a high-quality timepiece, is exceptionally rare.

Workings are signed "Tobias Katzenberger in Wien No. 1835"
