A gilt bronze Retour d'Egypte clock from the Consulate or early Empire period (circa 1800-1805). Circular in shape, the openwork dial is enamelled white with a blue frame adorned with gilded stars. At the top, an eagle spreads its wings. The mechanism is set on a circular openwork terrace supported by 4 sheaths with Egyptian heads wearing Nemeses, ending in claw feet. Radiant mask pendulum.
Our precious clock is a lovely model, very finely executed with many qualitative details: beautiful mercury gilding in matte and gloss, blue enameled dial. Our clock is typical of the Consulate period, with its Return from Egypt style, but it could also be from the early Empire, circa 1805, due to the eagle at the top.
Our clock is in remarkably fresh condition. The movement appears to be functional, but we have not taken it to the clockmaker at this time.
