Style of Sèvres (French, founded 1738)
This beautiful mantel clock features a richly detailed ormolu case inset with beautifully painted Sèvres style, Rococo themed porcelain plaques.
This charming mantel clock is crafted in the style of Louis XV, also known as the Rococo style. The clock features a body wrought from ormolu that is inset with Sèvres style porcelain plaques. The ormolu body features a plinth-form clock case flanked by scrolled buttresses, all above a flat base raised by four feet. The ormolu throughout is richly detailed: scrolling rocailles abound, as do draped foliate swags, and the case is surmounted by an elaborate ormolu finial comprised of a laurel wreath and flaming torch. The parcel gilt porcelain plaques feature Rococo style painted scenes: the largest, central plaque portrays a courting couple in an idyllic landscape, while the other plaques depict assortments of musical instruments and the bounties of harvest. The case is inset with a circular porcelain dial adorned with gilt Roman numeral hour indices.
