19th Century French Bronze Ormolo Mantle Clock c.1815
This 12th Scale working miniature clock is a perfect copy of a full size Ormolu clock that I own. Inspiration for this type of sculptural clock, came from Greek Roman mythology. The female figure is the personification of imagination, she is taking notes with her feather quill, and re-interpreting the familiar into something new.The wreath, book and lyre, represent Appollo, God of the Arts and Science.
This clock consists of over 20 individual pieces, all hand engraved and cut by me, there are no cast or etched parts, that includes the clock dial and hands.
