An impressive early 19th Century French Clock by T H re Le Roy, having 8 day striking silk-suspension movement with silver dial. The Clock, mounted in ormolu case depicting Egyptian lady with lyre perched on rocks holding wreath, supported on plinth decorated with central motif bordered with ribbon bound cornucopias bearing fruit flanked by kneeling Egyptian men. (One spring dated 1833.)


The French Revolutionery Wars before,  and the Napolionic Wars that followed after the Battle of The Nile, created an interest in Egyptian style objects.  Although this clock dates from the 1830's it certainly has a strong Egyptian flavour.  It is superbly cast in bronze and ormolu.  It has Egyptian men sitting like familiars, at the base. The case is topped by a stylish Egyptian Lady, holding  a wreath.  To her side is a gilded lyre. 


This is an amazing clock that would look at home in a classical or Egyptian themed interior.
