Ormolu Clocks

Ormolu, also known as gilt bronze and bronze doré, is perhaps the most popular material employed by clock manufacturers during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and as such ormolu clocks are especially abundant and collected today. Ormolu clocks connote luxury and opulence, and the sheer variety of their forms grants them a distinctive charm.

Mayfair Gallery’s hand-picked collection of ormolu clocks includes pieces of supreme quality from France- wrought in styles from the Rococo of Louis XV to the eclecticism of the Belle Époque- as well as charismatic examples from Victorian England and elsewhere. Browse our unique selection below to find the perfect ormolu clock for a traditionally styled home, or the ideal piece to serve as a statement in a contemporary interior.
