Questions about this piece?


This beautiful clock is cast in ormolu, or gilt-bronze, and is fitted with panels of porcelain in the style of the leading French manufactory, Sèvres, to create a wonderful decorative piece that immediately stands out for the unusual and effective nature of its fine design.

Of a distinctive oval shape, the clock has an intricate and complicated design, featuring both a calendar and standard clock dial, framed vertically with a pair of cherub porcelain panels to either side. The calendar dial includes a moon phase aperture and months inscribed in English, while the clock displays a visible escapement in a 4" white chapter ring. 

The case is mounted with two further porcelain panels in the spaces below the dials, in an elaborate floral Rococo style, with scrolling foliate motifs and a rich thick ribbon tied above. The piece, signed 'Le Roy & Fils, Pals.Ral.Cie. Montpensier 13-15, Paris,' combines exquisite craftsmanship with beautiful decorative design, to create a beautiful and glamorous antique piece.
