Also known as a Cartel or 'hanging' clock, this case design was popular in the 18th century and was much copied in the 19th century. Its design is close to a drawing for a clock, attributed to Jean-Charles Delafosse (1734-89) an architect and professor of drawing at the Académie de Saint-Luc in Paris. He published several volumes of engraved designs and was influential in encouraging the neo-classical style which was superseding the rococo after the mid 18th century.
