Early and Fine Bronze, Ormolu and Specimen Marble Clock with Cupid

About

A large, fine and exquisite, early antique French clock depicting cupid holding a sharpened golden arrow. It is of stunning quality and fully serviced and tested by our clockmakers. It is of finest ormolu (finely gilded bronze or bronze doré) mounted on beautifully figured red specimen marble. Cupid is finely modelled in bronze with a lovely, rich patination. The bronze work is by Pailly of Rue Chapon, Paris. Pailly is listed in Tardy, Dictionnaire Des Horlogers. The stunning dial is designed as a swag of ribbons in ormolu, set with 12 individual enamel cartouches. The rear door is glazed to allow the movement to be seen. This type of design does not have a glazed bezel to the front. The early French movement is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition. It is is the earlier version of the Pendule De Paris movement with a silk suspension. Pendulum is original. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. There is a video available showing the clock running and striking. Condition of the case is excellent, the gilding is beautifully clean and bright with hardly any wear or discolouration and there are no losses. The dial is also in excellent condition, no damage to the cartouches. The dial centre has been polished at some time. The bronze figure has a lovely patina and has been lacquered at some time to preserve this. The marble is in excellent condition with just some tiny nibbles to the edges. A beautiful clock to add to your collection. Bronzier mark on the movement front plate - Pailly of Rue Chapon Paris Complete with pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required. Dimensions of clock: Inches: Height 16 1/2", width 13 1/4", depth 6 1/2" Centimeters: Height 42 cm, width 33.5 cm, depth 16.5 cm.
