Important Mantel clock representing Study. Louis XVI period, France, Paris ca. 1780-1790.
The two-coloured enamel dial with date indication in red arabic numerals, and signed AParis. On either side of the clock are seated two figures; a young man with a tablet represents writing and a young woman represents reading. On a red marble rectangular base that is decorated with chased gilt bronze motifs, two sphinxes holding a laurel wrath, and two medaillons with Medusa's head. Underneath the dial a finely chased gilt bronze plaque of Venus and Cupid. The clock is surmounted with an eagle holding thunderbolts in his claws. The clocks design with the two figures was inspired by the sculptor Louis-Simon Boizot and the prepatory drawing for the clock was by the hand of the chaser-gilder Francois Remond, in collaboration with the merchand-mercier Dominique Daguerre. This clock was one of the most succesful neoclassical clocks of the late Louis XVI period.
Good original condition. Wear consistent with age and use.
