Sevres Porcelain and Gilt Metal Boudoir Clock.
~ French - Circa 1880 ~
~~ Excellent condition ~~
A very pretty boudoir clock of gilt metal with Sevres style porcelain panels and dial. This has a lovely pompadour rose background and is very delicately painted with birds and floral swags. The case is surmounted by a charming figure of Cupid about to fire an arrow, draped with floral swags. The style of the case is classical in the taste of Louis 16, architectural with supporting scrolls to each side of the case. Modelling of the case is very crisp and the gilt finish is very good. The clock sits on a gesso base covered with velvet to match the porcelain.
The Samuel Marti French movement is of excellent quality, runs for 8 days and strikes half-hourly on a bell. Backplate has the clockmakers mark. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. We have replaced the missing bell and the pendulum is original.

Condition of the case is
very good. The porcelain is all in good condition with no chips or cracks, a
very light scratch on the lower panel. The over-glaze gilt decoration is
slightly worn in some places. The gilding is in excellent condition with some
wear in places.
A pretty French Boudoir clock in excellent condition!
