French striking mantel clock garniture of white marble and ormolu. Circa 1900.

An unusually small and very attractive clock set.

The eight day duration, circular 'Movement-de-Paris'. Countwheel striking the hours and halfs on a tuned bell and having its original jewelled, lever, platform escapement.

Behind a 3" diameter, bowed white enamel dial with black Arabic numerals and minute ring. Also having finely pierced and engraved ornate gilt hands and an extremely finely cast hinged bezel with bowed glass. The bezel decoration is very well detailed.

In an angular plinth shaped white marble case with ormolu mounts. The top theme portraying a pair of doves and the three marble sections being separated by ormolu plates, the top plate having a protruding cavetto edge and the lower having large acanthus leaf moulding. The front and sides are adorned with laurel swags with the base adornment being inset. The bottom faceplate is sat upon four squashed-urn feet.

The pair of side pieces each have finely cast double candlesticks with sconces of decorated garden urn design, emerging from laurel adorned horns. The base sections and feet matching that of the clock.

Comment: Gold is extremely difficult to convey with photography and these pictures do not do this clock set justice. The appearance to the eye is immeasurably better than can be displayed.
