Sevres Porcelain and Gilt Rococo Clock Set
~ Samuel Marti~

~ French - Circa 1890 ~

~~ Superb condition ~~ 

A stunning Rococo garniture clock set, beautifully modelled in gilt metal and mounted with Sevres style porcelain panels. Porcelain has a very nice cream background which has over-glaze gilt decoration and delicately painted scenes. The clock has a beautiful porcelain panel painted with a romantic scene of courtship. Above the panel is the dial which is also porcelain, painted with a country scene and fitted with the original brass hands. 

Shape of the clock is the classic Rococo waisted key hole shape, decorated with flowing floral swags and 'C' scrolls and sitting on delicate bracket feet. The side urns have conforming bases with porcelain panels with delicately painted landscape scenes which are surmounted by beautiful cream porcelain urns. These are very well painted with scenes of ladies walking in a country setting. The gilding is in excellent original condition as is the porcelain.

The rear of the case has the case makers mark "Charles"
