Empire mantel clock in ormolu, or gilt bronze, designed as a portico, with four columns decorated with foliage and palmette. The columns support the entablature embellished with Pegasus and topped by a putto sculpting an antique bust. The dial with Roman and Arabic numerals is adorned with two eagles holding laurel branches and a triumphal crown. The pendulum features a winged Psyche. This beautiful portico clock takes its architectural form from the triumphal arch, one of the most distinctive constructions of ancient Rome, admired by Napoleon and the First Empire. Our clock rests on a rectangular base highlighted with winged griffins.
