French Hermaic Clock

Regular price $2,970.00 $0.00

France Ca 1825

In the Roman world, crossroads were often marked by a quadrangular boundary stone ("herme") surmounted by a mythological figurehead and bust without arms. This magnificent Hermaic clock is representing Homer head and bust in a patinated dark brown bronze over a Verona yellow marble boundary stone. The dial is "bronze dore au Mercure" and the clockwork works with a silk thread. The clock strikes every half and full hour. It has been entirely revised. Parisian work, Charles X period, circa 1825.
