This wonderful antique French Napoleon III clock set, with heavy gilt bronze & colorful champleve enamel, came from Chateau d’Oleron, in France, and was in the family for many generations. The clock itself is heavy, solid bronze with a richly gilded gold finish and colorful enamel inlays, and the two matching candle holders also display the rich enamel inlays. It is very rare to find a set like this. The clock is in perfect working condition and come with a key. All 3 pieces show wonderful enamel work on bronze: Intricate motifs and wonderful bright enamel colors. The enamel work is a very special one; the red parts are made of translucent enamel and give a wonderful contrast to the opaque cells in two shades of blue, with green, cream and white. This is truly a collectors set.
