# 4162. Offering a fine Fire Gilt Bronze Clock. 19th century. Probably French, though many countries made clocks in this style. Silk escapement movement. Excellent operating condition. Strikes on the hour and half hour. Original patina. The figures are Venus and her son Cupid. The unusual depiction of Venus (clothed) and Cupid (full grown) are uncommon. Condition: I don't know if there was a back cover to the movement on the back of the clock. IF there was one, there is not one now. This is a very heavy cast bronze case in excellent condition. We are not clock experts but believe that the movement is original to the case. The finish is burnished and dull ormoulu. The female figure is holding a dove which is removable.
