French Gilt Mantel Clock. Gilt bronze clock, porcelain face, blue Roman numerals. Elaborate portrayal of woman in early to mid 18th century costume posed next to urn. "F'cois Alard / A Paris" is printed on the face, which is missing its glass cover. We are not certain if the clock works and it needs to be cleaned, there is a small chip at one of the key holes and several pieces of ornamentation are loose, but this is quite a lovely decorative piece and any minor repairs would be worthwhile.

"Clarissa" appears to be engraved inside the clock, possibly referring to Richardson's tragic heroine.
Estimated Value $350 - 400.

Realized $299
