Antique Louis XVI Style Gilt Bronze & Marble Mantel Clock Garniture

Unavailable

This wonderful garniture in the French Louis XVI style includes a mantel clock and matching five-light candelabra, in gilt bronze with bleu turquin marble.  Produced in Paris in the late 19th century, enamel dial signed "Ch. Gautier / Ft de Bronzes / Paris-Bordeaux".  Removal of one bronze mount reveals the engraved mark "C+P" in the bronze. Clock measures 22.2 in (56.5 cm) tall.  Overall condition is good. Candelabras have one and three screws missing, respectively.  One candelabra lacks a rosette mount to block corner of the base.  One bobeche liner has been replaced.  Overall there are nicks and surface scratches to the bronze, rubbing and oxidation discoloration, consistent with age.  Key is missing, but of course may be replaced easily.  Movement is intact and clock should work, but will require professional adjustment upon delivery, as is our experience in shipping antique clocks. Provenance:  Sotheby's, New York. (blue, empire, France)
