Location: Baton Rouge


From the master artisans of Picardie comes this elegant Country French clock, styled with the signature rounded clockwork housing at top with belled base at bottom, all sculpted from dense, old-growth French white oak. Hand-carved embellishments delight the visual senses, from the urn finial to the dentil molding to the intriguing beaded "floating" trim around the clockface itself, and the wonderful wildflower, foliate and ribbon motifs that cascade down the finely molded casework. Even the side panels have been treated to the master cabinetmaker's touch with rosettes accentuating chamfered panels.
Circa 1870s.
Measures 105 x 22 x 9.
