Bollard clock
Bronze with patina and ormolu gilding

Paris, circa 1810 - 1820

Superb terminal clock resting on cushion feet, entirely with double patina. Adorned with ormolu bronzes on three sides, decorated with attributes and winged muses on the front. Beautiful alternation of finely chased and openwork gilt bronzes and smooth green patina parts. Enamelled dial signed by Lesieur, Paris movement also signed (which is rare after the end of the Ancien Régime), striking the hours and half past. Wire suspension, anchor escapement, striking with count wheel.

Lesieur in Paris
Watchmaker based in Paris on rue de la Verrerie during the Restoration and the July Monarchy. He is known to have collaborated regularly with Thomire and the leading Parisian bronziers. His movements are very often signed on the dial, but also on the movement at the back, which is the prerogative of the greatest. The Mobilier National has several clocks by Lesieur in its collections, who was a supplier to the royal furniture repository. 

Condition report: very unusual preservation of the gilding, a true collector's item. Functional movement, can be serviced and guaranteed for two years by our watchmaker, Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant. Please contact us for further information.
