The surrounding case is crafted from ebonised wood accented rosewood. Gilt bronze columns encompassed with winding garlands flank the dial on either side, while the case below is also architectural in manner. The base is raised on a bracket-like support, which features an ebonised wood shelf adorned with a gilt bronze Greek key pattern frieze. Allegories of music in gilt bronze stand atop the roof, while a sculpture of Apollo functions as a finial.
