For sale here is this superior quality, French ormolu mantel clock, which was made in Paris around 1860. The movement is impressed with a Japy Freres "Medaille d'Honneur" stamp and with the serial number "74328". The fine and large ormolu case is impressed with the mark of the respected maker, "P.H.Mourey" and with the number "6160". This grand, bell-striking clock has just been serviced. It is in good working order and comes complete with pendulum and key. This is a hugely impressive piece, depicting Ceres; the Roman Goddess of agriculture, harvest and fertility. Ceres is depicted reclining on a stool. She holds a sheaf of wheat in her left arm and she is surrounded with winnowing and threshing tools. The clock is topped with a bowl of harvested fruit. The gilt bronze base is adorned with superbly painted Sevres porcelain panels depicting a putto / Cupid, farming implements, haystacks, wheat sheaves and fruits of the harvest. The clock dial is also enamelled porcelain, painted with flowers on a Sevres blue ground. The clock measures 14 inches tall and is 18 inches wide. It is in overall excellent antique condition. The porcelain panels and dial are all fine. Please study all photos for details, as these form part of the description. Due to the size and weight of this item, delivery is by courier.
