About

A very unusual 19th century antique French orientalist/Moorish silvered bronze, gilt bronze and champleve enamel figural clock, signed Boulez, marks on movement ROBLIN & FILS FRERES, A Paris, 32499. Found in the middle of the clock is a seated orientalist woman, seen playing the tambourine. The clock is held up by four finely cast and hand-chiseled hoofed legs. Found throughout the clock is intricately hand-chiseled orientalist motifs of vines and various swirling designs. The dial is silver with beautiful blue champleve enamel. It is very rare and difficult to do a silvered and gilt bronze finish on large items such as this clock. Stamped by the maker. Paris, circa 1880.
