Large and spectacular Louis XVI period clock in white Carrara marble adorned with a rich decoration of copper and gilded bronzes.
Very architectural in shape, it rests on six `` spinning '' feet surmounted by a marble base adorned with garlands of pearls.
Each side is punctuated by pilasters, columns decorated in spirals with bronze garlands, and at the ends of inverted consoles in gilded bronze.
The upper part is decorated with pine cones, and a marble urn decorated with garlands and foliage in gilded bronze.
The enamelled dial is animated by two finely chiseled hands and bears the signature '' POCHON A PARIS ''.
Jean-Charles Pochon became a master watchmaker around 1775, he is one of the most important Parisian watchmakers of the last third of the 18th century. Installed Enclos Saint-Martin-des-Champs in 1780, then rue de l'Égalité in 1800, some of his clocks are mentioned at that time with the powerful bankers Jean-Louis-Bernard d'Etchegoyen and Nicolas Beaujon, and at Louis- Marie-Bretagne-Dominique de Rohan-Chabot duc de Rohan.
We will particularly notice the very good quality of the copper and gilded bronzes, with amatée and shiny patina, applied and with rich decorations of friezes, foliage, moldings, garlands, pine cones, pearls ...
