Guest Book

This tremendous 43 inch tall mantle clock in the French Louis XIV style, with elaborate ormolu decoration, dates from the nineteenth century and was produced for and retailed by Tiffany & Co. The face is decorated with enameled porcelain numbers, surmounted by a Greek mask. The original key and sunburst style pendulum are present. There is a small hole in the glass in the lower left corner. Male figures form the four legs and a female goddess on horseback decorates the lower center. The clock is surmounted by a three-dimensional figure of Cronus or Kronos (the Greek harvest deity known for overseeing crops who is typically depicted with a sickle), or Chronus, the Greek figure associated with the passing of time who is commonly referred to as the Father of Time. We have not yet inspected nor photographed the escapement.
