Price: $7500.00
Beautiful antique circa 1800 Mercury gilt bronze French clock depicting a beautiful lady standing next to a column with a harp and a sculptured cherub in the center of the harp. The clock is signed Picnot Pere and under that reads A PARIS. The clock has a scientific and astronomical design. The bottom portion has high relief sculptured children with telescopes, books and measuring devices on the front of the clock. It also has a sculpture of the world with astrological figures in high relief circling the world. Above the world is a palm tree. On either side are columns, measuring devices, artist brushes and pallet, books, and architectural structures. The theme is astronomy. Although the bronze sculptured clock case is superb the clock face is not perfect. It is missing a the hour hand. A clock maker could find a hand for it or a pair of new ones that would look good. The clock measures 19-1/2 inches high, 13-1/4 inches wide and 5 inches deep. The lady figure standing on the floral wreath measures 12 inches high to the top of her hair. Weight 25 lbs. This is a very ornately detailed and extremely high quality clock. The detail and composition are superb. Guaranteed to please the most particular collector or connoisseur. (Item #72831)
