Fine Antique Cobalt Blue Porcelain and Ormolu Lyre Clockset with Mystery Pendulum ~ French - Circa 1900 ~ ~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~ Antique French clock set, one of the nicest Louis XVI designs, elegant lyre shape in cobalt blue Sevres style porcelain mounted with exquisite ormolu (finely gilded bronze doré). A paste jewel set bezel surrounding the clock forms the mystery pendulum, as the clock ticks the jeweled bezel moves from side to side catching the light - see the video below. The clock is lyre shaped after Louis XVI designs, fine blue porcelain mounted with the best gilded bronze mounts. To the top of the clock is a sunburst motif with a swag draped below. The four light Candelabra are modelled as classical urns with masks and swags applied to the porcelain bodies. The foliate arms with leaves and rose bud formed sconces. The condition is original and superb with the fine ormolu contrasting beautifully with the blue porcelain.. (See Tardy Les plus Belles Pendules Francais for original Louis XVI clocks in the V&A and the Louvre) The dial is enamel on copper with delicately painted floral swags between the numerals. The finely pieced, lyre shaped gilt brass hands are original.. The French movement is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the video clip below to hear the bell and watch the bezel pendulum. Condition of the case is excellent, the original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with just some very slight marks / discolouration. The porcelain is perfect with one or two tiny original firing marks. There is some wear to the silvering of the pendulum. The rear foot of the clock has been replaced at some time. The dial is also in excellent condition with no damage. The set makes a stunning display as you can see below Complete with bell and a suitable key.
