Eugène Feuillâtre Silver and Plique-à-Jour Enamel "Capucines" Desk Clock

$55,000

About

This rare French Art Nouveau silver and plique-à-jour enamel clock depicts a dynamic display of butterflies and flowering "Capucines," or nasturtiums, by Eugène Feuillâtre. The front of the clock, which is charmingly- and subtly-shaped at the top like a butterfly wing, is decorated with intricate plique-à-jour enamel nasturtium flowers in shades of orange, each framed by a halo of delicate green flowers and leaves, while the face of the clock itself features two sweetly painted butterflies. The sweeping, gently angled sides of the clock share this decoration, while the top and back are gold-washed and heavily engraved with similar flowers and vines. Artist: Eugène Feuillâtre Circa: 1902 Dimensions: 6.25" height, 3.5" width, 3.5" depth Materials: Silver, Plique-à-jour enamel, Enameled brass clock face Signed: "Feuillâtre Sc.," clockworks incised "Lepine Aiguilles 28962" Provenance: Collection of Jerome Shaw, Florida Literature: Similar clock pictured in The Paris Salons 1895-1915, Vol. V: Objects d'Art and Metalware, by Alastair Duncan, Woodbridge, Suffolk: Antique Collectors' Club, 1999, p. 255 Exhibition History: Shown at La Société des Artistes Français in 1902
