Antique Roman Revival Bronze & Marble Mantle Clock Featuring Diana the Huntress
This wonderful Italian clock, circa 1900-1920, features a gilt and patinated bronze figure of the Roman goddess, Diana with stag, after the Roman marble sculpture dating from the first century AD known as Diana Chasseresse, or The Diana of Versailles (residing in the Louvre in Paris), and based upon the lost Greek bronze by Leochares, circa 325 BC, depicting Artemis. The clock has its original hand-painted decorations, and cast bronze mounts including griffins, urns and plaques. Condition of the movement is unknown, but it appears all important components are in place, and we are confident any professional can restore the movement to fine working order. Provenance: Sotheby's. Its neoclassical style will compliment a range of decors, including English Regency (George, Georgian), American Federal or French Empire. Condition is very good. There is a modern and professional restoration to stone loss at the base of the left side, and some inpainting. Dimensions: 28" H X 26.3" W X 8.75" D (71.1 cm H X 66.7 cm W X 22.2 cm D).
