An exceptional quality three-piece clock set designed in a grand neoclassical.
The set is comprised of a central clock and two flanking candelabra. The clock features a circular dial, which is inscribed with Roman Numerals. The dial is contained within a gilt bronze (ormolu) case, which is topped by classical cornucopias and a twin-handled vase. The clock case is set on a gilt bronze waisted plinth with a laurel leaf edge, and flanked by two gilt bronze acanthus leaf scrolls, which are draped with foliage swags. The clock is set on a gilt bronze rectangular base, which is decorated with a central scrolled foliate panel, edged with laurel leaves, and set on five toupie feet.
The pair of flanking gilt bronze candelabra are designed in a similar style to the clock. Each candelabrum features five lights, one of which is positioned directly above the stem, the other four scrolling up around it. The lights terminate in leafy drip-pans and urn-shaped capitals. The lights are supported on classical vases, which are set on plinths, flanked by scrolls and hung with foliage swags. The candelabra stand on rectangular bases, with decorative front mounts, raised up on four toupie feet.
