This rare and graceful Louis XVI-period French mantel clock is crowned by a Neoclassical marble sculpture of Ceres, Roman goddess of motherhood and agriculture. Rendered in white marble popular during the reign of Louis XVI, the maternal figure is joined by an adorable canine lounging on a pillow atop the clock’s dial and a charming putto-like child to the left of the clock face. The enamel dial features dual chapter rings with Roman and Arabic numerals. Ornate gilt-bronze details accent the entire piece, from the intricate frieze on the plinth base to the dial’s hour and minute hands and the delicate tassels of the pup’s pillow.

Circa 1770
