What a magnificent set this is! 19thc French Sevres Louis XVI style. This is a 3 piece Bronze Dore & hand painted Porcelain Garniture set. The set consists of this absolutely gorgeous Clock with matching Urns that convert to Casolette/Candelabras. When you turn the lid on the top of the urn upside down, it becomes a candle holder.
The measurements of the clock are as follows: 19.75" tall x 12"wide x 6.5" deep.
The measurements of the Urns are as follows: 12.5" tall x 7" wide x 4.25" deep.
Beautifully hand painted porcelain tiles enhance all three pieces with a blue celeste ground. The main scene below the clocks face, shows a young Man & Woman enjoying an afternoon by the lake. He has his pole in hand and is fishing, while she anxiously awaits his catch. They are both dressed in 18th century period attire.
The front of each Urn is adorned with a Cherub at the top. The next tile down shows either the Man or the Woman, and the bottom tiles shows Musical instruments. Notice that each cherub is facing in the opposite direction.
Lovely gilt acanthus leaf and foliate designs accent all of the pieces, as does the Head of the Lion, and the Ram. Acanthus leaf & Acorn finials top each Urn, and the clock works perfectly.
All measurements are clearly written on the front of the photos, as well as descriptions of what is being shown. So Please take a moment to have a look!
Condition is appropriate for their age, with light wear to gilding. No chips, or nicks to any of the porcelain pieces and the clock keep perfect time and chimes to perfection!
