A Gilt Bronze Figural Clock
1st Quarter 19th Century
This engaging gilt bronze clock depicts Hercules the Victor. In his left hand, he holds the golden apples. Under his right hand is the bludgeon he used to kill the lion and he now wears the skin as a cloak. The works and case have been professionally cleaned.
