EGYPTIAN REVIVAL EMPIRE STYLE ORMOLU MOUNTED MAHOGANY LONGCASE CLOCK
Paris, c. 1910, Retailed by R.J. Horner of New York
Item # 206LNZ24A


Heavily influenced by the euphoria for ancient Egypt so prevalent during the period, this longcase clock is appropriately embellished with a series of gilded mounts showing both the Egyptian and Neo-Grec taste of the era.  The triangular crest showcases a classical scene of a putto driving his chariot of two horses through the swirling clouds of the heavens.  The crest is easily removable the top, resting loosely in the case over round dowels.  The clock case is in two parts, the upper clock case resting on the lower pedestal stand.  The clock case is framed in two tapered pillars, each capped by finely cast Egyptian masks and flowing anthemion mounts, the columns terminating over tiny gilt feet.  The clock face is symmetrically detailed with foliate spandrels around a white porcelain face with black painted Roman numerals and carefully chased brass at the center and around the edges.  A mask of Dionysus hangs as the pendulum in an original wavy glass window.  Side doors on either side of the clock open over original hinges to allow access to the clock without moving it.  The back of the clock also boasts an upholstered door, opening to broadly reveal the works and interior.

The clock rests over a pedestal lower section, crafted of solid mahogany pillars crested by cast bronze palmettos. The back of the clock is heavily oxidized, nearly black in some areas.  An original label on the back of the clock reads "Imported from Paris by RJ Horner & Co, Furniture Makers, 61, 63, 65 West 23rd Street, NEW YORK.
