    French, Late 19th Century

    This beautiful pedestal clock has been crafted from green onyx and beautifully decorated with gilt bronze champlevé enamel. The clock features a green onyx cube-shaped case, which is surmounted by a slightly projecting top. This top is fringed with champlevé enamel drapery-like motifs, with gilt bronze drop-finials. The case is mounted on its front with a circular dial, which features a central floral champlevé enamel motif, encircled by black Arabic Numerals. This dial is set within a gilt bronze egg-and-dart and champlevé enamel bezel.
    Supporting the clock case is a tall green onyx block, and a pair of free-standing columns. These columns feature stylised gilt bronze capitals, colourful champlevé enamel shafts with gilt bronze gadrooned bands around their middles, and gilt bronze bases. The column shafts are decorated with white, yellow, royal blue enamels, which form Islamic-inspired geometric and floral shapes. The clock is placed on an onyx plinth, the top of which is decorated with a guilloche gilt bronze band and a central champlevé enamel plaque.
