About

Monumental French clock signed Vincent in Paris, Louis XVI era, white marble decorated in gilded bronze, sphinxes, caryatids, eagles and a low relief depicting Amorini in celebration. On the final part we have the Eagle that kills the snake, symbol of the victory of good over evil. The signature Vincent à Paris appears to be that of clockmaker Abraham Aimé Charles Vincent, a student of Ferdinand Berthoud; a clock whose dial is signed Vincent à Paris was mentioned in the probate inventory of Nicolas-Joseph Clary, 1st Count of Clary.
