This playful figural clock is a fine representation of the Romantic idealizing that dominated the animal sculptors of the first half of the 19th century. While roughly correct anatomically in the modeling of the equestrian subjects, much more creative license was granted to allow the expression of emotion and almost human characteristics in animals during the period. The result is a very fun display of horses interacting together on a beautifully modeled naturalistic ground complete with flowers and thick foliage. A very fine case with solid black slate and inset green marble veneers is quite striking against the brass dial frame, Roman numerals and placard on the base which notes the clock as being a presentation piece to Alexander K. Simpson Esq. M.D. of Edinburgh in 1865.

Measurements: 17” W x 7 3/4” D x 19” H

Condition Report: Patina wear to both horses, particularly to the back facing side; discolorations and oxidization to the bronze. Small chip to bezel. Clock movement is complete but untested and likely will need to be professionally serviced. Minor wear/chipping to the slate.
