By Samson et Cie (French, 1845-1969)
The Oriental design of this delicate antique mantel clock exemplifies the 19th century European fascination with Chinese art and culture.
The Samson porcelain clock is modeled as a white elephant, which wears a saddle decorated with Chinese figures. The elephand stands upon a Rococo style asymmetric base formed of acanthus leaf and C-scroll forms, and atop its back it carries the clock dial. The clock dial features black Arabic numerals on a white face, and pierced, intricate ormolu hands. The dial is encircled with an ornate, asymmetric band of ormolu in stylized acanthus leaf form. There is a red porcelain mark to the rear.
