French Chinoiserie Champleve Enamel Mantel Clock Garniture with Candlesticks
Our petite bronze garniture, including mantle clock and candlesticks, in the Chinoiserie style is of French origin and dates from the late nineteenth century. Believed to come from l'Escalier de Cristal, and designed by Édouard Lièvre or Émile-Auguste Reiber.
Below the face is the figure of Gautama Buddha seated on two twelve-petaled flowers. The clock face is decorated with floral motifs with Arabic numerals. It has an eight-day movement with platform escapement. Not currently working. Clock measures 8 3/4 by 5 by 3 1/4 inches and the candlesticks measure 6 1/2 by 2 1/2 by 2 inches.
