Napoleon III Gilt and Patinated Bronze Mantel Clock, "Psyche", France, ca. 1870

Napoleon III Gilt and Patinated Bronze Mantel Clock, "Psyche", France, ca. 1870

Item Description:

The timepiece centers around the figural of Psyche, her finely detailed wings fluttering behind her as she remains transfixed on the butterfly resting in her open palm. The casting quality is impeccable, her hair an intense display of curls over the strong and attractive features of her face, the flawless surface of her body cast free of even the slightest pit or blemish, the complicated flow of her dress replicated with utmost realism. She rests over a gilded case with finely chased ormolu mounts resting over lion paw feet with winged returns. The white dial of the clock retains an original surface with well preserved black Roman numerals and pierced hands.

Condition:

Movement "as-is" and requires restoration (strike wheel damaged, rust/oxidization of components). Back window is absent. Light scratch to Psyche's thigh, other minor patina wear, oxidization to the gilding. Early winding key and original pendulum included. Please contact cataloging@lofty.com for specific condition questions.

Height 21.5 in. x Width 13.38 in. x Depth 5.38 in.
