This spectacular gilt bronze mantel clock was expertly crafted by the celebrated French bronzeur Ferdinand Barbedienne. Designed in the extravagant Louis XV style, the timepiece is a tour-de-force of the Rococo manner. Sweeping scrolls and acanthus surround the clock face, which is flanked by two charming putti. The quality and condition, both mechanically and aesthetically, of this clock make it an incredible acquisition for collectors of both clocks and sculpture.

Barbedienne was one of the most sought after founders of late 19th-century France, and carried contracts with some of Paris’ greatest sculptors. In partnership with Achille Collas, who invented a method for making reductions of sculptures, Barbedienne produced works by both his contemporaries such as Antoine-Louis Barye and masters like Michelangelo and Luca della Robbia. Today, pieces hailing from this foundry are extremely sought after by collectors.
