Circa 19th century, large French bronze and marble clock garniture emblematic of literature.

The clock is flanked by standing bronze figures of the muses Clio and Calliope, on a fluted oval green marble base with gilt metal mounts, raised on toupie feet. There are a pair of bronze figures of Shakespeare and Milton, on matching fluted marble bases.

The eight day movement is stamped MF & F and striking a bell, the dial inscribed indistinctly ‘**UGHWOUT/ Paris New York’.
