French Louis XVI Mantel Clock

Eight day clockwork with going- and striking train. Dial with minutes, hours and dates. The dial is signed: Etienne Le Noir à Paris. The exterior is attibuted to Robert Osmond.

This urn shaped mantel clock with lions heads on a pedestal shows all the characteristics of the early French Classisicm [‘goût grec’ or ‘goût à l’antique’]
The urnshape itself is a typical example of the classisist motive, as are the lions heads with their loose hides that are suspended from nails and the wreath of bundled laurel that serves as a base for the urn.
The pedestal is decorated with oak-leaf and acorn garlands that spring from rosettes. The clock is topped by a pinecone.
