Very beautiful ceramic clock portraying an older man whose head is crowned with a young woman, a reminder that time passes and neither youth nor past loves come back …

Beard and hair have beautiful relief, eyes have powerful gaze.

Young woman is partly bare, long rippling dress flows into the man's hair, lovely headdress.

Turquoise and deep purple in colour, gilded gadrooned clock, Arabic numerals, dark iron hand.

 

Not signed, possibly Muller?
