French Bronze Clocks, 1700-1830: A Study of the Figural Images Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beautiful gold and bronze pendulum clocks not only tell time but also depict sculptures of Greek and Roman mythology, American Indians, and African figures. The symbolism of the figures is explained to reflect nearly-lost allegories that were well known 150 years ago. Over 200 color and many black and white photos display these fabulous clocks. An important additional feature is a visual directory of 1365 bronze clocks with bibliographic references that will hertofore make researching the field much more efficient.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 266-267) and index.
