Description

 

In Neo-Rococo style and standing on 4 cabriole feet, the rocaille scrolls enhanced with gilding and pastel hues of pink and green.
Applied with bouquets and sprays of coloured flowers, the shoulders applied with two putti and a figure of a classical maiden
holding aloft a floral wreath, a sheaf of corn resting on her right arm.
The concave shoulder section above the clock face supports a 4 sided dome
which are both reticulated , highlighted with fine gilding and also applied with sprays of flowers.
The dome supports at it’s apex a very handsome and regal looking cockerel in full cry.

The area immediately below the clock face is hand painted with a scene of lovers in the style of Watteau,
below which is an applied image in high relief of a Winged Father Time.

Marked to the base with a 1st quality Meissen crossed swords device in underglaze blue and incised with the model number 2701.

This wonderful clock is in REMARKABLY FINE CONDITION.
There are the usual minor losses and over painting to the tips of petals, foliage and  the cockerel’s tail feather,
but in every other respect the porcelain  is well preserved and apparently without loss or repair.
The French chiming clock movement with white enamel dial marked for Henry Marc – Paris,

The movement appears to be intact but is in a seized-up state. The bell strikes on the hour and half-hour.
