This elegant and graceful mantel clock is a prime example of timeless design in the Neoclassical style. It is expertly crafted from deep, burnt orange Siena marble and patinated bronze, and takes the form of a Classical female figure leaning on a marble pedestal reading, on a rectangular marble plinth base, decorated with bronze mounts and set on four bronze paw feet. The quality of the bronze figure is particularly notable, with the hair and drapery modeled with exceptional attention to detail. The clock dial is set into the centre of the pedestal and features Roman numerals.

The clock movement is the work of the Parisian clockmaker Claude Hemon (active 1770-1820), and is signed 'Hemon Paris', while the bronze casting is the work of celebrated bronze founder Pierre Victor Ledure (French, 1783-c.1840). Both Hemon and Ledure were highly sought-after craftsmen in their day, and their pieces can today be found in the British Royal Collection at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh and the Royal Pavilion in Brighton respectively. The clock dial is signed by the two makers 'Ledure Bronzier / Hemon Hr'.
