Antique Gilt Bronze & Patinated Cupid & Soldier Mantel Clock Love Overcomes War

About

Stunning, French Transition style mantel clock from the 1850s. This wonderful and meaningful Parisian mantel clock is a rare 19th century edition of an 18th century design by Charles Le Roy. There are only minor differences and this, originally called ' L'Amour triomphant de la Guerre ' clock simply is exquisite. The combination of the gilt bronze sculptures and the beige-white marble intensifies the classical splendor of this 'work of time telling art'. As you can see in our images, the gilding is still in very good condition and that is certainly not always the case with antique clocks. The 'putti' represent love in the form of cupid and 'war' in the form of a soldier putto and the quality and details of those two sculptures reveil that they are the work of a master sculptor. The enameled dial face with the original gilt arms and the hand-painted garlands complete the exterior of this antique and meaningful work of beauty. The eight-day mechanism is in the best condition possible and it runs and strikes perfectly. When checking if it still runs eight days, we were pleasantly surprised, because fully wound it ran for almost 12 days. This relatively small in size, but grand in design antique clock most certainly is great value for money. Especially when taken into account that perfect packing and worldwide delivery from our store to your door in just 4 days are complimentary. Maximum height x width x depth: 10.3 x 9.8 x 4.3 inches. We have a passion for the unique, for quality, for stylish yet practical and for craftsmanship of years gone by. Your purchases will be extremely well packaged and we look forward to serving you (again). You can shop all our 1000+ listings by pushing the button that reads 'View All From Seller'.
