A rare late-Victorian French patinated, gilt and silvered bronze animated bicycle clock. Above a well-cast patinated man dressed in a uniform and wearing a kepi stands on a rockwork ground and pushes a gilt and silvered-bronze Penny Farthing bicycle. ‘Made in France’ is stamped along the back edge of the rockwork. The whole stands on a molded gilt bronze frame that is supported by a red marble base with turned feet.
