Mantel clock, Anonymous, c. 1768

bronze (metal), h 87cm × w 42cm × d 26.5cm. More details

Large gilt-bronze mantel clocks from Paris were considered symbols of wealth and good taste throughout Europe. For example, in the 18th century, Swedish kings purchased two mantel clocks of this model. The clock’s plain, monumental shape –a lyre with a wounded dragon – is an early example of the Neoclassical style.
