Antique French 19th C Aubert Klaftenberger Paris Louis XV Ormolu Mantel Clock
Antique French 19th C Aubert Klaftenberger of Paris Louis XV ormolu mantel clock. Dating to the 1840's this stunning mantel clock has superbly gilted decorations which is equalled only by the beautifully decorated Sevres porcelain panels on the front. As expected from all fine 19th century French makers this clock is cast in several pieces. The movement was made by Jean Vincenti and co sometime between 1834 and 1855. The clock expert who serviced this piece dated it to the 1840's due to the use of string in the mechanism.
The esteemed firm of Aubert & Klaftenberger made only the highest quality clocks and as such were commissioned by the heads of state and European royalty to make diplomatic gifts for them. This piece is stamped 1244 on the clock mechanism, on the outside and on each subsequent porcelain panel which verifies that it was always together.
