This is a Swiss gilded mystery clock, the base features an affable angel figurine while the dial is painted white with Roman numerals painted in black indicting the hour. The pendulum cast in brass has a rococo finial
attached at its base.
Unlike other clocks, the mystery clock holds no definite mechanism. Surprisingly, it’s difficult to find out the functionality of this genre. Turn the clock over, examine
the back, and you still won't be able to tell what makes it tick and keep accurate time. Depicting it as an illusionary method, the clever clock makers tend to hide its
machine, making it look mysterious.
Provenance : Property from an elite Parsi collection based in Mumbai.
