Considered by many to be one of the finest sculptors ever produced by France, Auguste Moreau was but one in a family that also heralded Mathurin and Hypolyte Moreau, exceptional sculptors in their own right! This example is a wonderful expression of his work, with a charming young girl depicted bringing home some wheat followed by her faithful companion, a little lamb. Celebrating the innocence of youth, it has been set upon a stunning jasper two-tiered footed base with polished brass dial surround and numerals. As is the case with all our antique clocks, it is in running condition!
