Important French Orientalist Jeweled Clock for Turkish Market, YSL Collection

$45,000

About

An important antique French orientalist style Jeweled gilt bronze clock made for the Ottoman market. This enameled clock sits within the decorated column's supporting a tulip shaped dome. Swags and wreaths abound, culled from many periods, while steps lead the eye past Gothic inspired arches, to find out you are late for your next appointment, or perhaps assignation! Clocks gave artisans, such as this creator, an opportunity to create works of functioning fantasy. The soft glow of crystal jewels, the warm glow of gold and exotic shapes conspire to take us back to the era of a 1001 Nights in all their splendor. Magic carpet ride anyone? Provenance sold Christies Paris YSL sale Purchased by YSL in Christie's Paris.
