An eighteenth-century Louis XVI ormolu mantle clock signed on the dial and the backplate of the movement Charles Dutertre à Paris, c. 1780. The case with a woman leaning on the left and facing a putto on the right is a symbolic representation of l'amour et l'amitié – ‘love and friendship. It is a model by the bronzier Vion.The two are located on a draped base, which stands on scroll feet. The Roman and Arabic dial has asymmetrical winding holes and black numerals, the time being indicated by pierced gilt brass hands. The movement is of classic design with a going train with short pendulum and a striking work indicating the hours fully and the half hours with one stroke on a bell.
