A superb quality French Victorian bronze gilt antique mantel or table clock adorned with classical female figure wearing a dress and laurel wreath halo writing in a book draped over a white carrara marble rectangular shaped base with bow ends. The base is embellished with foliate rosettes and laurel leaf moulding and stands on decorative feet.

The clock has a white enamel dial with Roman numerals and the makers name-

Leroy & Fils

They had retail outlets in both Paris and London and under Queen Victoria they were the only foreign clock makers that had the British royal warrant.
