This exquisite five piece antique French clock set is full of joyful Rococo exuberance and features delightful gilt bronze models of cherubs, together with some incredibly intricate floral cloisonne enamel work. The set consists of a central clock, a pair of candelabra and a further pair of vases.

The vases are especially charming, and are modelled as gilt bronze winged cherubs holding aloft cone-shaped glass vases for flowers, on circular plinths decorated with cloisonne enamel work. The pair of candelabra are similar in design: each has five cloisonne-adorned lights, attached to scrolling branches, and a central stem which emerges from a cloisonne enamel urn, on an oval shaped plinth. The plinths for the candelabra are mounted to the front with an ormolu frieze decorated with wave motifs.

It is the central clock, however, which is the most finely decorated piece: the gilt bronze clock dial is circular and set inside an enamelled case, decorated with the same floral cloisonne work as on the other pieces. The clock pediment is surmounted by an enamel urn, and there are finely-cast gilt bronze cherubs holding garlands of flowers also mounted onto the cast. The clock is set onto a square base which is set on four feet and mounted at each side with gilt bronze dolphin masks.

This is an exceptional set which will suit the finest interiors.
