Object Description

This superb gilt bronze and malachite mantel clock was created during the Charles X period, with the malachite veneer being a later addition. The clock is defined by a large sculptural group, created from gilt bronze, which portrays a classical female figure riding a rearing horse. The detail is superb, as expected from clocks of this period. The horse rears above the clock drum—housed within a gilt bronze tree stump. This sculptural group sits atop a rectangular malachite base, which is finished with complementary classicising gilt bronze mounts. The clock is a remarkable example of its type.
