By Graux, Jules (French, active late 19th Century)
This stunning antique clock set is notable for its central figurative group, which depicts two nymphs caught in a moment of ecstatic, Bacchic revelry.
Comprising a central clock and a pair of flanking seven light gilt bronze candelabra, the clock signed 'Jules Graux, bronzes d'Art à Paris' and 'Clodion' on the clock face, the movement stamped 'Medaille d'Argent, Vincenti & Cie, 1855', surmounted by a patinated bronze group of two intertwined nymphs; the pair of candelabra similarly decorated with two women holding the ormolu candelabra aloft, all on red marble bases with ormolu mounts.
The figural group per this clock set is based on the model 'Two Nymphs and a Satyr' by Clodion, now housed at the Currier Museum of Art in New Hampshire, USA.
Clock height 80cm, width 40cm, depth 28cm; candelabra height 82cm
