Attributed to Picard, Henri (French, fl. 1831-1864)
This antique gilt-bronze mantel clock, dating to circa 1860, is a fine example of superior gilding work and embossed details on the dial.
This French ormolu mantel clock is attributed to Henri Picard (French, fl. 1831-1864) and designed after a model by André-Charles Boulle (French, 1642-1732), with the movement by Languereau, Paris.
The circular case is surmounted by the personification of time, depicted as an elderly bearded man with wings and a draping robe seated on a globe. The head of Apollo is finely cast above the large circular dial, which is embossed with expansive curvaceous forms, set with enamel Roman numerals and circled with finely engraved Arabic numbers. The sides of the clock are decorated with musical trophies and floral motifs, which are replicated on the rectangular case.
The movement is stamped ‘LANGUEREAU / PARIS’.
