An Elegant Mantle Clock
In the Louis XV Manner
The clock and its plinth executed in gilt bronze in a dynamic rococo style, rising from scrolling foliage, the dial in the shape of a flower and having the hours marked by hand-painted porcelain roman numerals; flanked by scrolling acanthus and foliage with an intertwined foliate pinnacle. The eight-day movement striking on the hour, and half hour.
French, circa 1890
