French Gilt-Mounted Sevres Style Porcelain Mantel Clock, retailed by Payne of Paris, ca. 1865-75

French Gilt-Mounted Sevres Style Porcelain Mantel Clock, retailed by Payne of Paris, ca. 1865-75

Item Description:

The gilt bronze Rococo case with Sevres style painted plaques throughout, a painted female portrait siting within an oval cameo at the pinnacle of the case with gilt vines spilling down the sides and over the dial with acanthus leaves at the top of the dial and gilded birds to either side, the dial below painted with panel of flowers sitting above three panels of cupids and putti which form part of a horizontal gilt bronze base floridly decorated with leaves and vines and sitting on tight acanthus leaf feet, the rear of the case flat brass with a circular door leading to the movement, the white porcelain dial done in the 18th century French style with blue Roman hour chapter, closed minute ring and Arabic markers placed every five minutes around the periphery of the dial, Louis XVI style gilt brass hands, two winding apertures and the name 'Payne' at the top and 'A Paris' at the bottom of the dial, with classic round solid brass plate movement typical of those used by French clock makers throughout the 19th century, the eight day double spring driven movement with short pendulum, striking the hour and half hour on a silvered bell.

This is likely to be by the firm of William Payne and Company of London active in clock making during most of the second half of the 19th century, and possibly having a Paris office during this time.


Appears to be very good, one of the painted panels has been replaced, not in working order. Please contact for specific condition questions and to request a full condition report.
