A beautiful antique French marble and ormolu (gilded brass) portico clock set. It is classical in style, the clock is mounted between a classical four column portico. Urns are ovoid in shape with ormolu handles and flaming finials.

Marble is a very nicely figured specimen Sienna marble and the ormolu mounts are finely modelled, particularly the sculpture of a lion which sits majestically on top of the clock. Pendulum depicts the sun god and can been seen swinging below the movement between the columns of the case.  

The dial is enamel on copper, decorated with floral swags delicately painted between the numbers of the dial. Hands are gilded fretted brass.
