Catalogue Note

The decoration on the present lot, with the combination of basse-taille and glass bead embellishment on gilt metal is often found on imperial tribute clocks made in the Guangzhou workshops during the Qianlong period. For an example with these techniques, see a clock in the collection of the Palace Museum, Beijing, The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum: Scientific and Technical Instruments of the Qing Dynasty, Hong Kong, 1998, cat. no. 219.
