Antique French Empire Patinated and Gilt Bronze Mantel Clock

About the Item

Antique French Empire patinated and gilt bronze mantel clock French, early 19th century Measures: Height 55cm, width 43cm, depth 13cm This fine Empire period mantel clock is wrought from patinated and gilt bronze. The clock features a large gilt bronze sculptural surmount of Bacchus, the Roman god of agriculture, fertility, and—most importantly—wine. Bacchus is seated on the clock drum, his right hand holding a lyre and his left a staff draped with bunches of grapes. The silvered dial below is set into a gilt bronze drum moulded with further leafy vines laden with bunches of grapes. The patinated bronze base below is centred with a gilt bronze bas relief panel depicting a Bacchanalia, while the remainder of the base is set with finely cast and pierced classicising gilt bronze mounts. The clock is raised on gilt bronze toupie feet.
