This charming clock set, comprised of a central mantel clock and a pair of flanking en suite candlesticks, is crafted from malachite and ormolu in the distinctive Neoclassical style. The malachite veneer is a later, beneficial addition.
The mantel clock features a shaped malachite base raised by two ormolu toupie feet and two scrolled acanthus leaf feet. The base supports, via a waisted plinth, the circular white enamel clock dial, which is inscribed with Arabic numeral hour indices. The dial is contained within an ormolu bezel and is set within the malachite case. The clock case is flanked by twin malachite and ormolu quiver and arrow elements and is surmounted by a malachite urn-form finial draped with ormolu foliate garlands.
The en suite candlesticks are similarly decorated, each raised on a conforming malachite and ormolu base and terminating in a single candleholder.
The enamel dial is signed ‘Ovington Brothers Co. / New York / Made in France’ for the retailer that originally sold the set.
