ca 1810. Figure of Napoleon pointing to England. Finger he is pointing with has last digit missing. Top of clock is spelter. Bottom is ormulu over slabs of marble. This is all housed in a toile base. Closk brass works are French, seems original and works on a silk thread (pendulum). The bell emits a tiny and strike--one clock hand is missing. I think this clock is period Napoleon. I believe it was produced as cheap as possible to appeal to the masses--hence marble slabs instead of solid marble...
