Louis XVI style clock with Bacchante and musical satyrs. The body of the clock features two young satyrs in gilded bronze each holding twin horns; they lean back against the shaped white marble clock plinth supporting the white enamel dial. Atop the dial is a gilded figure depicting a classically draped young maiden symbolizing Bacchante; who leans back holding a cup above her head in her left hand.

The clock base of white Carrara marble is richly decorated with gilded bronze around the front and sides; the whole on four toupie feet. The original clock movement has a steel suspension system and rings the hours and halves on a bell. The 18th century model is referenced on page 222 and Page 224 of “Les Plus Belles Pendules Francaises, De Louis XIV a l’Empire” (“The most Beautiful French Clocks”) written by Giacomo et Aurelie Wannesnes and published by Polistampa in 2013.  France circa 1880.
