  • Description
    French red marble and gilt bronze Neoclassical style matched clock set
    French, late 19th Century
    Clock: Height 70cm, width 57cm, depth 23cm
    Candelabra: Height 70cm, width 31cm, depth 24cm
     
    This elegant three-piece matched clock set features a mantel clock and a pair of candelabra, each of which is crafted from red marble and gilt bronze in the Neoclassical style.
     
    The mantel clock features a shaped red marble base mounted with gilt bronze elements, such as a classical mask to the front centre and scrolling acanthus leaf feet to either side. The base supports the pedestal-form clock drum, which is crafted from gilt bronze and inset with a red marble dial. The drum is adorned with scrolling brackets, draped swags, and three medallions. A large figure of a reading woman leans against the drum, her form and dress distinctly classical in appearance.
     
    The candelabra are similarly decorated. Each candelabrum features a red marble base raised above a gilt bronze plinth, with a vase-form red marble body above. The body, mounted with Neoclassical style gilt bronze elements, supports the candelabrum head, which issues six scrolling light branches.
     
    The dial and movement are signed for Lermerle Charpentier.
     
    Artist/maker: Charpentier & Compagnie (French, fl. 1860s)
