A Large and Wonderful Quality Mid 19th Century Napoleon III Gilt and Patinated Bronze Figural Mantle Clock 

By Henri Picard


The top surmounted by a festive urn topped with a bouquet of fruit, flowers, and wheat, surrounded by three ram heads, the clock face flanked by large patinated bronze cherubs seated atop the rocaille and grillage-molded festooned base.


The clock face inscribed Marquis a Paris and Stamped H. Picard on the reverse.


The important fondeur and doreur Henri Picard worked in Paris from 1831 to 1884, most notably for the Emperor Napoléon III. He was based in Paris at 6, rue Jarente from 1831 to 1839, before moving to 10, rue de la Perle. The firm was active until around 1890.


Celebrated for the high quality of his production, Henri Picard supplied many important patrons, including garnitures and table pieces for the petits appartements of Emperor Napoléon III at the Louvre. An important pair of twelve-light candelabra by Picard remain in the Musée du Louvre today.
