A Rare Gilt and Patinated Bronze ‘Chariot’ Mantel Clock by François Linke.

This fine clock is in the form of a putto on a chariot pulled by a winged female bust with turban, on a 'C'-scrolled acanthus and rocaille decorated base, signed 'F. Linke', the wheel-shaped dial with blue enamel Roman chapters, the twin-barrel movement with platform lever escapement with strike to bell, signed 'CCH AND AD/ MOUGIN'; with winding key and regulating key.

This whimsical mantle clock, loosely in the form of a chariot or gondola, is in the high rococo style of the sculptor Léon Messagé as promoted in his Cahier des Dessins et Croquis Style Louis XV, 1890. Messagé’s designs of asymmetry rocaille created 'le style Linke' for which Linke’s stand at the Paris 1900 Exposition universelle was so applauded.
