About

A 19th century Louis XVI style clock garniture, a so called 'Garniture de Chemineé'. The mantle clock with two matching vases constructed of pink veined marble and gilt metal. The rectangular drum case with a finely painted enamel dial, Arabic numerals and gilt brass pierced hands. Stamped „SH Paris“ and "AD MOUGIN Deux Medailles“. The movement was made by Adolphe Mougin: a Paris clockmaker, who exhibited at the Paris World's Fair in 1889 where he won a bronze medal and at the Paris World's Fair in 1900, where he won silver. The drum case flanked by the patinated figures of Flora and putto and surmounted by finely cast gilt metal flowers. Raised on toupie feet. The subject of Flora probably based on models by the 18th century Bronzier and sculptor Francois Vion (1764-c.1800). Vion was well known for his clock cases. Among his finest sculptural cases is one housing a movement by Lepaute a' Paris, representing the Three Graces (Muse´e du Louvre, Paris) made for the comtesse du Barry at Chateau de Fontainebleau. Measures: Clock height 56 cm (22.05 inches) Vases height 45 cm (17.7 inches) About Francois Vion see: Hans Ottomeyer and Peter Pröschel: Vergoldete Bronzen. Die Bronzearbeiten des Spatbarock und Klassizismus, Munich 1986, Vol. I, p. 147, fig. 4.6.9 - 4.6.11
