US$16,500

About

A stunning French 18th century Louis XVI period ormolu and silvered bronze clock, signed Pfeñinger, Zurich. The clock is centered by a striking foliate berried bottom finial below the impressive and most decorative recessed silvered bronze panel flanked by richly chased swaging berried laurel garlands. The white enamel displays beautiful minute numbers, fine Roman numeral hour numbers and elegant pierced ormolu hands. At each side are lovely reeded patterns and intricately detailed acanthus leaves. A wonderfully executed flowing ribbon leads up to an impressive urn with the eternal flame finial and a detailed mask. All original gilt throughout.
