Egyptian Revival Three-Piece Clock Garniture Flanked, Obelisk France, circa 1880
A powerful expression of the cultural curiosity in the mysteries and discoveries of ancient Egypt during the late 19th century, this very finely decorated clock is incised with a full array of hieroglyphics and Egyptian motif. The mantel clock is surmounted by an Assyrian Lamassu figural cast in patinated metal over a bronze base. The faceted slate is supported over a Sienna marble body surrounding the embossed bronze clock face with its gilt incised Roman numeral chapter ring. The flanking obelisk are incredibly striking, the slate incised with a symmetrical collection of gilded and polychromed symbols that oppose the other beautifully. Both rest over brass footings and are highlighted with blocks of gray Sienna marble. Measurements: [clock] 16” W x 6 7/8” D x 17” H; [obelisk] 6 5/8” W x 4 5/8” D x 20” H Condition Report: Movement as-is: missing pendulum, bell, hour/minute hands and dial door. Lamassu figural inner leg with patina loss. Tiny chips to slate throughout, small chips to back corners of clock, large chip to front proper left corner of clock base; one obelisk with large chip to reverse. Clock does not appear to have ever had a brass footing.
