About

French Empire gilt bronze clock French, early 19th century Measures: Height 38cm, width 27cm, depth 10cm This fine gilt bronze mantel clock is an excellent example of the manner and style of clock that predominated during the Empire period. The clock features a rectangular base inset to the front with a relief panel depicting two figures in a landscape, the entire scene bounded with a Fine moulded foliate border. The base supports the case of the clock itself, which is square in profile and inset with a circular gilt bronze dial inscribed with Roman numeral hour marks. Atop the case sits a large gilt bronze sculptural figure—likely Diana, goddess of the hunt—attended by a dog.
