French 19th Century Empire Portico Clock

About

This elegant period Empire ormolu-mounted white marble portico clock, circa 1830, is from France. The floral-and-foliate ormolu-mounted frieze sits above four Doric columns with gilt bronze collars and bases and surround the workings. The 4-1/2? enamel dial is marked “Sacré à Paris” and displays black hand painted Roman numerals and housed in a gilt bronze acanthus-leaf bezel over an unadorned pendulum. The whole rests on an ormolu-mounted plinth base with gilt bronze pad feet. This clock would be exquisite set atop a darker contrasting mantel (fireplace) or console table!
