Circa 1870, Victorian marble and bronze mantel clock. The clock is surmounted by a bronze lady holding what appears to be a compass in one hand and a globe in the other, lying back on a fluted drum which is gilded and houses the clock. The front of the clock has a beaded ormolu bezel, and the original glass is quite thick and has a bevelled edge. The white enamelled face has Roman numerals the name ‘C.Detouche’ in Paris. The clock and bronze sit on a white marble plinth which is heavily stained. The plinth is almost pagoda in shape with fluting and a brass beading, and the whole piece stands on turned brass squat bun feet. The clock has been serviced and is working. Although the marble has poor colour the overall effect of the clock is stylish and classical.
