The mark indicates that the mechanism was built by Jules Rolez Paris and works perfectly. The gong sounds the half-hour and hour and the sound is very soft. The dial is glazed and decorated with floral motifs. The glass, content in a brass frame, is bevelled. Unfortunately, the key is not original. The clock is contained in the base of onyx that also supports the figure of the maiden resting on a rock while going to take spring water.

On the basis there is a plaque with the inscription "La moisson", the harvest, and the name of the author who is the famous French artist Auguste Moreau, Dijon, 22 February 1834, 11 November 1917.In the back there is the same brand that is on the main figure and on the other.The basis of this figure has a foot that has suffered a break and was restored, as you can see from the photographs. The other figure is a maiden that has a bird on a hand and an object of square shape in the other hand.Unfortunately the plate on the base is missing and this, together with the leg restored, are the only faults with this clock garniture, very hard to seeThe central figure with the clock is 47 cm high.
