Fine Antique Clocks & Decorative Gilt Bronze

 

Antique Lighthouse Industrial automaton and weather station clock by Guilmet.

 

A particularly good example of one of Guilmets light-house clocks. Rests on a circular rouge marble base. Above this is a two tier stepped base outlined to simulate stone blocks and there are windows and a door depicted on it. The mechanism which rotates the”light”on top is housed in and wound through this. The column is in smaller block-work than the base and is shown with two “windows”. Above this is the rotating “light” surrounded by a gilded and fretted gallery. To one side is a barometer and on the other an 8 day clock. At a point 90 degrees between them are thermometers, one centigrade and the other fahrenheit. Above these is a gilt dome with gilded finial and decorative gilded strips extending out to a ring. To the top of the lighthouse is a weather vane. French by Guilmet, Paris circa 1880. 1718 inches high ( 45 cm).
