description

An Exceptional Louis XVI Style Gilt-Bronze Champlevé Enamel Mantel Clock.

This fine gilt-bronze and champlevé enamel clock has an arched case with outset bulbous columns to the angles, it is surmounted by a drum top with a pierced scroll and ball finial and applied with expressive cherub mounts. The front and sides of the clock are all exceptionally finely painted with neo-classical scenes of figures in an architectural setting and the top and base enriched with fine polychrome champlevé enamel.

The clock has an enameled chapter ring with Roman numerals interspersed with anthemion devices and a twin barrelled, eight-day movement striking on a bell.
