This French mantle clock dates from the last quarter of the nineteenth century and features finely cast patinated bronze figures of Cupid and Psyche admiring a butterfly, after the original sculpture by Pierre-Philippe Thomire (French, 1751-1843). The figures are set against a green marble pillar in the form of a cenotaph tomb which houses the original clock movement. We have found only numeric markings on the movement and the maker is unknown. Bronze and mixed metal mounts include a laurel-enframed lyre on sides and Juno on peacock driven chariot, and the rectangular base is decorated with gilt bronze mounts and raised on bronze feet. It measures approximately 30" by 19" by 8".
