This is a beautiful gilt metal pillar clock in the neo-classical manner - a cherub bears the weight of the clock housed in a drum above his head - laurel wreaths and a reeded column. The capital that the cherub holds is decorated with sunflowers. The modelling of the piece is excellent.
Condition is very good - as you would expect some wear to the gilt. The movement is an excellent French 8-day with platform escapement - probably a slightly later replacement for an inferior tic-tac or other small pendulum movement. The movement has been serviced and is clean and running. The hands are old replacements and the dial has been refinished to a high standard - this clock displays perfectly as you can see in the pictures below.
Unusual and highly decorative addition to the home of a discerning collector
Height 15 3/4",
