As much of a sculptural work of art as a majestic timepiece, this monumentally-sized Napoleon III longcase clock is crafted of exquisite Algerian onyx and rouge marble. Based upon the luxurious materials and stunning size, this timepiece was almost certainly created by special commission. The clock is much larger than the typical longcase and stands at just over nine feet high, with the typical height being between six and eight feet. The mechanism is a desirable eight-day striking movement, and the time is indicated on a fine gilt bronze face inset with porcelain Roman numerals. Exceptional gilt bronze mounts envelope the entire timepiece, with a golden figure of Father Time serving as the finial. 

Circa 1880
