Italy, Mid-18th century
This clock exhibits the magnificent craftsmanship of the Italian baroque. Guilloche decoration in gilt bronze emphasizes its luxurious curves and manages to make structural support seem feather light. The gently curved enamel clockface painted with Roman hours and Arabian minutes features an intricately etched center and delicate hands. Walnut with lighter wood veneer. Non-working condition due to lack of a rare part.
