  • Description
    Napoleon III Period Neoclassical Malachite and Gilt Bronze Clock Set by Picard
    French, Late 19th Century
    Clock: Height 72cm, width 46cm, depth 27cm
    Candelabra: Height 78cm, width 31cm, depth 30cm
    Comprising a central mantel clock and two candelabra, this late 19th Century Neoclassical style clock set is crafted from gilt bronze and a later malachite veneer.
    The central clock features a striking ormolu sculptural surmount, depicting two female figures, dressed in classicising Greek draped clothing, and holding a grapevine. One figure stands in contrapposto, glancing to her right, while the other kneels on the group and glances to her left. The sculpture sits on a malachite base, which forms the clock case. The circular central dial features ormolu hour indices, and is flanked by further ormolu mounts in the form of foliate detailing.
    The pair of candelabra are decorated conformingly, with a vase shaped malachite body and shaped base, decorated with twin ormolu handles and further decorative mounts. They both feature nine lights.
    Each piece in this three-piece set is stamped 'H. Picard' on the gilt bronze.
    Artist/Maker: Henri Picard
