French 19th Century Louis XVI Style Ormolu and Marble Signed Clock

About

A striking and grand scale French 19th century Louis XVI st. ormolu and marble clock, signed Marquis à Paris. The mechanism is manufactured by Honoré Pons. The clock is raised on an impressive solid white Carrara marble rectangular base with a cut angle top. At the base of the clock is a hammered and finely chased floral band below the fluted façade with a beaded ormolu trim. The large enamel dial has Roman numerals and pierced foliate hands above a majestic swaging berried laurel garland. At each side are large scrolling acanthus leaves that lead up the sides of the clock to the top. Above is a stunning urn with richly chased leaves, interlocking and fluted patterns, with an impressive eternal flame above. All original gilt. The gearing before the cannon pinion yields 793 hours of run. Which mean that fully wound, this clock will run for approximately a month. Honoré Pons (1773-1851 Paris ), Pons is known as the best and most influential clock makers of the 19th century. In 1798 he worked as a clockmaker for the prestigious Lepaute. In 1803 he set up as a clockmaker at Rue de la Huchette in Paris, located close to Place St-Michel where many of the distinguished clockmakers such as Berthoud, Bréguet and Lépine were based. In 1807 Pons was commissioned by Napoleon’s Interior Minister and moved to Saint-Nicolas-d’Aliermont. Over the years he received many gold and silver medals and in 1819 received the highest acclamation by the Légion d’Honnerur. Many mechanisms signed Honoré Pons are conserved in the Musée des Arts et Métiers while a collection of his clocks are on display at Musée de l’Horlogerie de Saint-Nicolas-d’Aliermont.
