LePaute à Paris.
A large, very rare Louis XVI annular dial clock by the maker Lepaute à Paris. The rectilinear center has a lift-out front door with a Wedgwood plaque of Pan framed by an eight-sided floral molding. To the sides are Cupid’s implements amongst scrolling clouds and garlands that support both a patinated figure of Cupid and the blued sphere above. The two-part sphere has ormolu stars, a decorative center band with silver stars, a shaped silvered name plaque engraved ‘LePaute à Paris’ and an aperture below with a screwed silvered frame. The whole sits upon a white marble base with a molded edge and six ormolu feet.
