Antique Gilt Bronze Mantel Clock by Sevin and Barbedienne



This ormolu clock is an exemplary work by the famous French 19th century metalworker and foundry-owner, Ferdiand Barbedienne. Working with a design made by the acclaimed onamentalist, Louis-Constant Sevin, Barbedienne has crafted a magnificent clock, consisting of a central circular dial that is set within an architectural glass and ormolu case. This case is richly decorated with flaming urns, foliage swags and scrollwork, as well as Mannerist style masks. The classical figure of Neptune, God of the Sea, surmounts the clock. He holds a trident, which allows him to control the sea and its creatures, pictured below. Lower down, on a vertical axis with Neptune, there is a wonderful Apollo sun-burst pendulum. This clock is a truly impressive piece of Barbedienne craftsmanship and is signed ‘F. Barbedienne’ to the side.
