Description of the item

The term Pendule d’Officiers (or Officer’s Clock) is generally used for a very specific form of transportable, very decorative clocks produced a few years before the Revolution. Napoleon himself purchased at least one, on May 19, 1798. This clock was made approx. 100 years later and retailed by Asprey. Antique Asprey items are very sought after.
