Review

French Restauration cathedral clock. Crafted of gilt bronze with the utmost attention to detail, this mantel clock is a celebration of the Gothic Revival style, that took place in France in the early 19th century. The ormolu case features the west façade of a Gothic cathedral, with exquisite detail throughout the complete architectural structure. The façade is decorated with a central portal, fluted columns, cathedral arcades, lobed pattern and domed arches. The pilasters that flank the entrance are decorated with statues in Gothic niches. The dial is highlighted with pierced rosette. It indicates the time with enameled Roman numerals on bronze individual cartridges. The clock is set upon a rectangular plinth embellished with pierced festoons frieze. At the back, two neo-gothic pilasters flank the pendulum.

Cathedral clocks are iconic pieces of the Restoration period, and are sought after by collectors.
