A great deal of Meissen ware was exported to Paris, where merchants in luxury goods devised all kinds of new objects in which to incorporate the expensive porcelain. This clock is set in a gilt-bronze case to which a Meissen porcelain figure group has been added. The two figures are Columbine and Pantalone, characters from the commedia dell’arte, the Italian theatre tradition.
