Superb Rococo Table Clock Set ~ Cupid.
by Samuel Marti 
 

~ French - Circa 1880 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~ 

A beautiful Rococo clock set of the most stunning quality and condition. It is of typical Rococo shape with bold acanthus leaves, 'C' scrolls and shells. Below the dial is a velvet back fretted panel in front of which is a globe and a set square. To the top of the case is mounted a beautifully depicted figure of cupid about to fire off an arrow. He sits among a bed of flowers. The dial is large and heavy, it is mounted with 12 individual enamel cartouches and a centre plaque signed by the retailer 'A Lemaire, 121 Rue Vieille-Du-Temple, Paris'. The original hands are beautifully hand made from blued steel and the dial covered by thick bevelled convex glass. The sides of the case are fretted and backed with red velvet. The rear of the clock is equally well modelled, the back boor and the panel below are fretted and backed with red velvet. Candelabra are beautifully modelled as acanthus 'c' scrolls with entwined foliage and a floral finial.       

The French movement is also of the very best quality and is by Samuel Marti who's mark is on the back plate of the movement along with the retailer's. It is a large plate movement with pin-pallet escapement and rack striking. It is in immaculately clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. It is complete with it's original pendulum.

The finish of the brass is excellent - bright and clean. There are some minor areas of wear or discoloration. The dial is in very good condition with no chips or scratches. We have replaced the red velvet with new.

Complete with pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.

A stunning clock set of the highest quality, ready for you to display. Many more pictures below!
