Very fine Empire patinated and gilt bronze (ormolu) clock on a red marble base attributed to Gerard-Jean Galle.
Our clock shows standing goddess Pallas Athena wearing a plumed helmet and a long tunic. She holds a spear in her right hand ; her left hand is resting on an hexagonal shield. The rectangular red marble plinth rests upon a gilt bronze base.
Paris, late Empire period, circa 1820. That type of clock was very successful in Europe in early 19th century. A first pattern was created by famous bronze maker Claude Galle with a circular shield. His son Gerard-Jean Galle took over the family business and executed near identical models, including that new version with the hexagonal shield. Our piece is dated 1820 : it is probably one of the first productions of that model.
Museum quality clock, mythical object.
In excellent condition, perfectly working ; the back door simulating the end of the dress is missing.
