French Onyx, Champlevé, and Limoges Enamel Mantel Clock
This lovely mantel clock features beautiful adornment by the esteemed Limoges Porcelain Factory. The exceptional case is crafted of elegant translucent onyx with lavish champlevé enamel plaques showcasing intricate multicolored flowers, vines, and scrollwork.

An 8-day spring-driven movement powers the clock and strikes a bell at the hour and half-hour. The dial is further adorned with gilt accents, displaying the time upon gilt Arabic numerals framed by a gilt bezel with an eye-catching gilt and enameled dial center.
