Mantel clock "Cavalier"
Impressive mantel clock with equestrian hussar above the dial. The delicate work of metal and the coordinated coloring represents the mounted hussar in the attack, in the mountains. Drawing a saber on a reared horse, he climbs a rock. The Hungarian horseman's headdress, perhaps indicates and romanticizes the Hungarian revolutionary events of 1848-1849. Despite the static frontality of the "ceremonial portrait "the composition is organized asymmetrically. The fine texture of the silvered pendulum and the patina of the horse matched with it set off the overall sound of gold. Its large ligature of the Renaissance pattern is a sign of the time of Louis Philippe - the outbreak of romanticism. H-44cm. A complete revision of the mechanism was carried out.
