Superb clock in gilded and patinated bronze, with fluted uprights and four glazed sides Water leaves and chiseled florets at the level of the top and the base. Decorations of griffins, rosettes, foliage, Athenians and bacchantes. Openwork warheads on the sides. The dial is signed Cachard, successor to Ch Leroi. (Cachard Gaspard in Paris: fictitious successor of Charles Leroi during the revolution, rue Saint Denis). Very nice work from the Empire period. The movement has been revised recently. A little wear to the gilding at the level of the plate.
