About

A sensational and extremely high quality French 19th century Louis XVI st. onyx and ormolu clock by Raingo Frères, Paris. This most elegant clock is raised by an ormolu base with most decorative recessed panels of foliate designs below two beaded ormolu bands. The architectural onyx case displays beautiful fluted columns with fine fitted ormolu chandelles. At the center is the dial signed Raingo Frères and flanked by richly chased pierced ormolu berried foliate mounts. Above is a most impressive ormolu statue, signed Clodion and raised on a display shelf with a beaded ormolu border. The exceptional statue is of two beautiful maidens dressed in classical attire. One maiden is holding up a tambourine while the other is playing with a charming faun at her feet and grasping clusters of grapes all in a rich satin and burnished finish. All original gilt throughout. Striking proportions.
