French decorative art was internationally acclaimed at the start of the 19th century. The most important Paris dealer at that time was Lignereux, from whom the English ambassador to France bought this clock. The secretary on which the pendule stands also came from this dealer. The woman leaning with her elbow on a stack of books represents Learning or Science.
