19th Century French Figural Spelter and Green Marble Mantel Clock After Picault
Attributed to E Picault, this mantel clock was created in France, circa 1880. Standing on a green marble base embellished with tapered brass feet, the time keeper features a blacksmith figure at work next to the clock itself decorated with garden tools at the pediment. The clock movement marked JS, is in very good working order and protected with a brass and glass front door; the mechanism has been checked out and cleaned by our clock-man! The mantel clock is in excellent condition, keeping great time and chiming, and adorns a rich patinated bronze finish. Key and pendulum included.
Emile Louis Picault (1833-1915) was a French sculptor, best known for works depicting allegorical and patriotic subjects, and mythological heroes; Picault was a very prolific artist, producing many sculptures during his long sculpting career. He began to show his artwork at the Salon beginning in 1863. He signed the majority of his work as “E. Picault”.
