Object Description

Large Neoclassical style marble and gilt bronze circular movement mantel clock
French, late 19th Century
Height 82cm, width 26cm, depth 26cm

Crafted from the finest of materials—including beautiful white marble, gilt bronze, and patinated bronze—this unusually large mantel clock is a superb piece of Neoclassical design. The clock features a white marble vase-shaped case, which houses its circular movement. The vase is set above a plinth form base, which is inset with gilt bronze relief panels of cherubs. The clock throughout is set with superb gilt bronze mounts, including the twin snake handles and the leaf-form motifs along the belly of the vase-form case. Strikingly, the plinth, in addition to supporting the vase above, also supports a patinated bronze cherub, whose reaching arm serves to indicate the time. The movement is a superb piece of clockmaking, while the case demonstrates the very best of 19th Century French design.
