Antique French Gothic mantle clock with water automaton feature
Antique French Gothic mantle clock with water automaton feature. The Gothic case with patinated bronze against ormolu is typical of the period circa 1840. The ormolu is of fire/mercury gilding. The dial is fine, and the clock stands upon four ormolu toupee feet. "Water" flows from the mask disapearing through reeds into a heavy Baccarat rectangular bowl. The clock movement is an 8 day, silk suspension movement. The automaton feature runs very well indeed. 37cm High by 14cm Wide and 14cm Deep
