Austrian Empire Style Mantel Clock With Automation

This remarkable early 19th-century mantel clock is a wonderful example of mechanical ingenuity. In a charming feat of engineering the clock features an exceptional Cupid automation in the dial. At the stroke of each  hour and half-hour, the god of love comes to life, diligently operating a treadle foot pedal drive to sharpen his arrows. Housed in an elegant walnut case, the clock features a beautiful architectural design held up by a decorative temple of the wind alabaster columns. Cast brass garlands add graceful touches to the case showcasing the Neoclassical influence notable in Empire-style design. A wonderful brass dial displays the time one an distinctive porcelain chapter ring with Arabic numerals.

Powering the clock is a 2-train 60-hour movement that strikes the hour and half-hour on a tuned gong.

This remarkable clock bears a full restoration and a one-year warranty.
