This fine Régence style three-piece ormolu clock set is comprised of a central mantel clock and a pair of flanking candelabra.
The mantel clock features a rectangular profile case raised on a flared ormolu base, the sides of the base pierced with rinceaux motifs. The case features a pedimented top, also of pierced ormolu, which is surmounted by an urn finial. The sides of the case are mounted with ornate dragon-form handles, while the dial is comprised of individual enamel cartouches placed within a tooled ormolu setting. The surfaces throughout are superbly detailed with motifs that hint at the preceding Baroque and prefigure the coming Rococo: grotesque marks and Baroque exuberance are mixed with delicate foliate designs.
The pair of candelabra is similarly decorated, each candelabrum featuring an urn-form stem and supporting the springing of six scrolled branches; the stem of each candelabrum culminates in a fleur-de-lis finial surmount.
Clock: Height 60cm, width 36cm, depth 20cm
Candelabra: Height 67cm, width 25cm, depth 25cm
