The case attributed to G.Servant
Georges Emile Henri Servant ( 1828-1890) succeeded his father at their foundry at Rue Vieille-du-Temple, Paris in 1855. He specialised in the production of Neo-Egyptian style clocks.
He was noted for the high quality of his bronzes at both the Paris Universal Exhibition 1855 and the London Exhibition in 1862.
Many of his clocks were exported to the United States where his Sphinx clocks were sold by Louis Tiffany Inc. and Hamann & Roche of New York.
He won a gold medal in the 1867 Paris Universal Exhibition for his Neo-Greek and Egyptian works. He was also awarded the Ordre National de la Legion D’Honneur, Frances’s highest official mark of recognition in 1874.
