This clock is set in a frame made of gilded copper and inlaid with multi-colored glass. The front panel in the lower section of the clock contains nine revolving flowers made from red and yellow glass in a frame made of blue and red glass. The mechanism that controls all the flowers is placed inside the bottom of the box. The timepiece is a white enamel three-hand dial framed by tendrils and flowers made from polychrome glass. When the clock is activated all the flowers revolve to accompany music. The blue and red flowers at the top of the piece revolve clockwise and then counter-clockwise.
