A Louis XVI ormolu mantel clock
circa 1785, the dial signed Ridel a Paris

Catalogue Note

An ormolu mantel clock of this model, but with a white marble base, is illustrated Jean-Dominique Augarde, Les Ouvries du Temps, Genève, 1996, p. 308, fig. 234. This clock is surmounted with a standing putto holding a banner and a wreath that, as the drill holes to the top of the clock case indicate, almost certainly decorated the lot offered here.
