Questions about this piece?


The design of this beautiful three-piece clock set utilises to maximum effect the straight lines, flawless porportions and subtle yet artful ornamentation which gives the Louis XVI style its enduring appeal.

The set is made up of a central clock and a pair of flanking candelabra: the clock has a central circular enamel dial which bears the mark for its 19th Century retailer, 'Bernard-Lebel / Fougères'. The dial is set within an ormolu drum-form case, and is supported by four lapis lazuli columns on a shaped plinth. In between the columns hangs the clock's pendulum.

The plinth, columns and clock case are all surmounted by lapis lazuli vases with ormolu finials. There are ormolu mounts all around the clock's exterior, in the form of scrolls, beads, and garlands.

The flanking candelabra each have five scrolling ormolu branches, supported by a single lapis lazuli column, on a square base. Each light has a circular drip pan beneath it, and the central light is surmounted by a removable finial.

The clock set dates to the late 19th Century, with the lapis lazuli veneer being a later addition.
The dimensions of the individual pieces are as follows:

Clock- Height 64cm, width 37.5cm, depth 14cm
Candelabra- Height 59cm, width 24cm, depth 23cm
