Description Empire Period Neoclassical Malachite and Gilt Bronze Mantel Clock
French, early 19th Century
Height 48cm, width 23.5cm, depth 11cm

This mantel clock was finely crafted in the Empire period, wrought from ormolu and a later malachite veneer.

The design of the clock is based on classical architecture. It features a malachite entablature—with an ormolu pierced mount to the front—which is supported on four ormolu bun feet. The malachite column shafts are smooth and each culminate in a capital, supporting the malachite top. Between the columns, there is a drum clock case which features an ornate circular dial, inscribed with Roman numeral hour indices. The dial is decorated with ormolu to the centre and features a floral moulded border. Beneath it hangs a pendulum with a circular end.
