Jumbo Collection Antique French Ormolu Mantel Clock

$60,000

About

This important and fine ormolu clock was made in France towards 1860, according to the taste of the so-called Second Empire. The case is a typical quality bronze cast and gilt one, composed of a sculpted scene surmounting a decorated plinth where the actual clock is inserted. A gilt metal dial, showing a quality chiselling work, houses twelve white enamel cartouches where hours, from I to XII, are painted in black enamel. It is spring-driven, with a short pendulum, striking hours and half hours in petite sonnerie mode. The clock is in overall good condition. The clock was in the private collection of an Italian collector. By family repute, the clock was originally in the villa of Giuseppe Verdi, the world-renowned opera composer, in Italy.
