Empire Ormolu Clock, The Reader After Reiche By Claude Galle & Grand Girard

Empire ormolu clock - the Reader after a model of Jean-André REICHE (1752-1817), bronzes attributed to Claude Galle. Dial signed of Champion in Paris circa 1810.

This pendulum shows a young woman sitting at a luxurious desk reading books. A whole symbolism of learning appears here : the woman's youth, fully disposed to acquire new knowledge, and oil lamp, symbol of light and prudence. The circular dial takes place in the center of the table.

In very good condition, mercury gilt is very fresh.

Height : 33cm Length : 29cm Width : 14cm
