French 19th Century Neoclassical Style Porcelain and Ormolu Clock

$9,800

About

A most attractive French 19th century neoclassical style porcelain and ormolu clock. The clock is raised by fine scrolled ormolu feet below the beautiful deep forest green porcelain base. The base is centered by a lovely and most charming hand painted scene of a Napoleon and Josephine. Napoleon is standing wearing his military attire and holding his bicorne under his arm. Josephine is dressed in a gown seated on a park bench. The scene is signed by the artist PETIT and is centered by fine gilt accented musical instruments at each side. Above is the striking ormolu clock face with a lovely central design and Roman numerals framed within a most decorative entrelacs et les rosaces ormolu band. The original beveled glass is framed within a finely chased ormolu band with two charming butterflies below. Above is a striking ormolu statue of a winged angel draped in a flowing garment sitting with the eternal flame at his side and holding a bow in his left hand. His feet hang over the side and are resting on a charming bench while his hand extends toward a beautiful cornucopia atop of a fine column. All original gilt throughout and original French movement retailed by Hamann & Koch, New York.
