French Ormolu and Bronze Elephant Chinoiserie Clock

About

This exquisite French ormolu and bronze clock of a chinoiserie figure holding an umbrella and sitting astride an elephant typifies the fascination of 18th century France with all things oriental. The circular clock dial is bordered with a foliate ormolu motif, and features a white dial and blue Roman numerals to the face. A Chinese figure with a parasol sits atop the bronze elephant and is set upon an ormolu base in the Rococo style.
