Description In its unusual and beautiful design, this sumptuous mantel clock effortlessly transcends the boundaries between sculpture, clockmaking and objet de vertu. The piece is modelled as a patinated bronze winged putto dangling the gilt bronze clock case from a naturalistically-cast gilt bronze ribbon, with a drumstick in its other hand.

The putto is also shown sitting on a circular gilt bronze pedestal, decorated with fluting, trailing vines and rose-heads. The piece is set on a square shaped red marble base which is mounted with gilt bronze beading and foliate motifs.

The circular enamel clock dial bears Roman numerals as well as a retailer's stamp for Jacques Gudin in Paris, a prestigious vendor of fine clocks and watches during the 19th Century.
