Mantel clock Cavalryman

An impressive mantel clock with a mounted hussar above the dial.

Fine metal work and coordinated coloring represent a mounted hussar in an attack in the mountains. Snatching a saber on a rearing horse, he climbs onto a rock. The Hungarian horsemans headdress perhaps indicates and romanticizes the Hungarian revolutionary events of 1848-1849. Despite the static frontality of the ceremonial portrait the composition is organized asymmetrically. The subtle texture of the silvered pendulum and the matching patina of the horse set off the overall sound of gold. Its large ligature of the Renaissance pattern is a sign of the time of Louis Philippe - the end of romanticism. H-44cm.

A complete revision of the mechanism was carried out.
