About

Marble, silvered bronze, and ormolu clock set by Barbedienne French, late 19th century Measures: Clock: Height 59cm, width 26cm, depth 26cm Candelabra: Height 53cm, width 22cm, depth 22cm This unusual clock set, by the famed fondeur Barbedienne, is crafted from marble, ormolu, and silvered bronze in the distinctive Baroque style. The set features a mantel clock and a pair of conforming candelabra. The clock features a spherical grey metal drum adorned with gilt stars and featuring a circular clock movement. The drum is raised above three ormolu Baroque style grotesque dolphins, which are in turn supported on a shaped red marble base. The drum is surmounted by a foliate finial crafted from ormolu and silvered bronze and resembling in form the shape of a fleur-de-lis. The candelabra are similarly decorated, each featuring a marble base, a Dolphin-form stem, and four branches crafted from silvered bronze and ormolu in a distinctive foliate style. The reverse of one bronze mount is stamped ‘F B’ for Ferdinand Barbedienne, while the clock movement is signed 'Chevillier Fbt. / A Paris'.
