18th Century France Louis XVI Gilt Mantel Clock by Lepine, 1790s

$7,678.75

About

Wonderful golden clock, signed Jean-Antoine Lépine, (born November 18, 1720, Challex, France, Died May 31, 1814 (aged 93)Paris, France) a wonderful example of the art of this great watchmaker. For more information on the author of this watch, I refer you to Wikipedia: Digit Jean-Antoine Lepine. Mantel clock of the late 18th century, the watch shows wear due to time, to be restored and controlled mechanism. Anchor mechanism or silk thread, on the dial small lacks of enamel near the ring charge hole. Imposing clock but of a grace out of the common one, well chiseled but not too much, we find the just compromise between elegance and opulence. We are faced with a work of art, both in terms of form and the importance of the author. This is the second watch of the famous Lepine that we have the honor of having in our shop.
