After a design by Beaucour.


The dial signed A Paris.

The clock is conceived as a fountain flanked by upturned dolphins spouting jets of water framed by bulrushes.


This clock illustrates perfectly the inventiveness of the French bronziers of the 18th Century. The design for this one is signed by Beaucour who also stamped different clock cases and is N° 100 in an album preserved in the Bibliothèque Jacques Doucet in Paris.


An identical clock signed Tavernier à Paris is discussed and illustrated in color in

 P. Kjellberg, L’Encyclopédie de la pendule française du Moyen Age à nos jours, Paris, Edition de l’Amateur, 1997, p. 214, fig. A.
