This table clock was made of chiselled and gilded bronze in the early 19th century in France, Empire era. The bronze structure consists of a central part, in which the watch case is positioned. This is supported by two swans placed in profile with open wings. The neck of the swans, bent downwards, holds a perforated oval basket with a geometric railing.
The swans rest their legs on a richly chiselled oval base. In the upper band there is a decoration with ribbon and sunflower motifs. In the frontal band, an application always in golden bronze, is chiselled with the representation of two swans, whose body is transformed into vegetal elements, which support a basket full of flowers. The base rests on four legs with circular section.
The clock is very decorative, particularly suitable for display on dressers and consoles, but also on desks, bookcases and coffee tables. Bright and elegant, it can be combined with both antique and modern furnishings. Inside the basket you can place a composition of flowers or fruit or can be thought of as burning perfumes. The bronze finish also in the back, makes the watch pleasant even if placed in front of a mirror.
The clock movement works but is to be revised
