A Gilt Bronze Clock.
This important gilt bronze clock depicts a maternity scene of the Duchesse de Berry with the infant Duc de Bourgogne in her arms. The Compte d'Artois, future King Charles X (1824-1830), prays at her knees. The details in the mounts and ornaments used here are wonderful. In working order, the case and works have been professionally cleaned.
France, 1st Quarter 19th Century
