Clock "Temple of Love" Louis XVI period

Beautiful clock in white marble and finely chiselled gilt bronze, it represents a temple of love and is crowned with a radiant mask.

The clock rests on four small spinning tops, and stands on a semi-circular white marble terrace plated with a band of gilt bronze with a amatis background and topped with a row of gilt bronze beads.
Four white marble columns rise up to form a temple of love. The columns rest on a square base, they are fluted and receive in rudenture a gilt bronze decoration and chiseled. They end with Corinthian capitals decorated with a double row of acanthus leaves in chased gilt bronze.

The roof of the temple receives the same bronze decoration as the terrace and supports the clock's movement and dial.
The enamelled dial rests on two branches of laurel in carved gilt bronze. It is summoned by a finely carved radiant mask inscribed in a crown of flowers.
The pendulum also takes again this figure of radiant glory.
