Description With Works by Jean-Baptiste Dubuc (working 1780-1819)

Jean-Baptiste Dubuc was an important Parisian clockmaker who worked at Rue Michel-le-Comte No. 33, Paris from 1780 to 1819. He is best known for the mantel clocks that he exported to the United States, and, in particular, those that have a cast figure of Washington on them. The clocks have eight day works that strike the hour and also strike once on the half hour. Similar clocks are in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Winterthur Museum, and The White House.

Reference: Another clock of this form is illustrated in Edgar G. Miller, Jr., American Antique Furniture, volume 2, page 980, plate 1963.
