Vintage cloisonne carriage clock case with a porcelain cobalt blue dial face having a lacy floral design and miniature oval porcelain portraits of Victorian ladies on each side, also with the same cobalt motif and all with gilt gold edging. The clock face is under bevelled glass, while the ladies are under plain glass. Has an intricate finial along with cloisonne minarets on each top corner. The cloisonne is very finely done as well as brightly colored. The metal corners and back door have an etched scrollwork design. There is an attached oval plaque on the back door reading "Made in the Peoples Republic of China Tian Jin Number 011". I call it a clock case as it appears to not have a regular clock movement (of course, it does not run) and the wires indicate it may have had a battery operated movement at one time. Measures 7 inches tall to the top of the finial and is 3 1/4 inches wide and 2 1/2 inches deep. The cloisonne is all well done and intact. I have not attempted to polish the aged metal. Enlarge photographs for detail - being sold as is.

It is a very pretty piece, quite heavy for its size. Obviously I am not clock knowledgeable, so feel free to email with questions.
