French Louis XIV Style Urn Mantle Clock
A beautiful French mantel clock featuring a deep blue porcelain urn case fitted with ornate doré brass. The urn has delicate handpainted polychrome floral decoration. It is raised on an elaborate footed base of doré or gilded brass with ram’s head scrolls flanking the center. An equally elaborate top of tent form with crossed torch and quiver along with side handles further appoint the urn.
An 8-day movement keeps the time striking a bell at the hour and half hour and is signed “A. D. Mougin.” The white porcelain dial beneath the hinged convex glass features black stylized Arabic numbers, fleur de lis hands, and is signed “Chekler Freres, Alger.” Further, this clock is restored and comes with a one-year warranty. A very eye-appealing timepiece evoking the opulent and lavish styles of France during the reign of Louis XIV.
