EGYPTIAN REVIVAL THREE-PIECE CLOCK GARNITURE
Mantel clock flanked by obelisk; France, circa 1880's
Item # 803MBP03Q 


A powerful expression of the cultural curiosity in the mysteries and discoveries of ancient Egypt during the late 19th century, this very finely decorated clock is incised with a full array of hieroglyphics and Egyptian motif.  The mantel clock is surmounted by an Assyrian Lamassu figural cast in patinated metal over a bronze base.  The faceted slate is supported over a Sienna marble body surrounding the embossed bronze clock face with its gilt incised Roman numeral chapter ring.  The flanking obelisk are incredibly striking, the slate incised with a symmetrical collection of gilded and polychromed symbols that oppose the other beautifully.  Both rest over brass footings and are highlighted with blocks of gray Sienna marble.

Measurements:  [clock] 16 W x 6 7/8 D x 17 H; [obelisk] 6 5/8 W x 4 5/8 D x 20 H

Condition Report:
Movement as-is: missing pendulum, bell, hour/minute hands and dial door.  Lamassu figural inner leg w/ patina loss.  Tiny chips to slate throughout, 
small chips to back corners of clock, large chip to front proper left corner of clock base; one obelisk with large chip to reverse.  Clock does not appear to have ever had a brass footing.
