" Clock In Bronze Mercury Gilt "erato Et Eros""
Very beautiful pendulum from the Restoration period around 1820, in gilded bronze with mercury. Very decorative by its two large characters finely chiseled and faithfully reproduced. A figure of the Muse Erato seated playing the lyre and his admirer Eros. White enamel dial underlined by an outline of a snake biting its tail, symbol of infinity. Large rectangular base chiselled with a magnificent decoration on the three sides of scrolls and acanthus leaves.

Original mechanism without modification, wire suspension, striking hours and half hours on old bell.

Pendulum of very good quality, unusual model, perfect authenticity and a remarkable state of conservation.
