A Carrara marble clock on a gilded bronze base

Large Mantel Clock representing Hebe serving Jupiter (Eagle) in white marble.

Hebé rests on a stylized cloud that recalls Mount Olympus. She holds in one hand a cup and an amphora, in the other symbolizing her role as "cupbearer" of the gods.
The pedestal in white marble is flanked by a decoration of Greek bronzes.
She is dressed in an antique drape, in the style of Clodion's models.

This model is very rare and does not find its equivalent on the market or in museums. So we have very few documents of comparison, both on the subject sculpted in marble and on its association in Watchmaking.

Because of its size and the quality of carved marble cut in a single block, we can certainly consider that it was the subject of an order.

Representation is also unusual. Most Hebe models are gilded bronze rather than marble and the subject is always treated differently
