Superb Antique French Portico Clock set

~ French - Circa 1870 ~

A very decorative and good quality brass portico clock set. The movement is housed in a drum supported on 4 columns, with the pendulum swinging visibly below. The dial is made in the fashion of 18th century examples; a repousse work dial is mounted with enamelled cartouches, with the centre also being a cartouche. The style of the clock is gothic, the urn on top of the the clock mounted with winged mythical creatures and the medieval banners hang beneath the dial.

The set is complete with the suit if 3 gesso bases which we have restored and re-covered with red velvet and gold trim.
