A fine ormolu mantel clock signed by Dieudonné Kinable (1794 – 1830). The 8 day movement with silk suspension strikes the hours and half hours on a single bell.
Kinable was one of the foremost clockmakers in 18th century Paris, and his studio was located at the salubrious Palais Royal.

This figural mantel clock embodies the Empire style and depicts the mythical figure of Orpheus, who was attributed with having the gift of music. He was the son of Apollo and the muse Calliope, and is depicted here playing the lyre. Resting against the side of the clock is also a bouzouki, a Greek instrument and a torch and laurel wreath rest nearby. The plinth is adorned with applied medallions of a musical theme and stands on bun feet.

French, c.1805.
