Gorgeous 18th c. French wall clock - movement by Charles Voisin; case made at Chantilly Porcelain Manufactory, 1740. It's decorated with a monkey playing in a tree, flowers, and a green dragon. It's made of soft-paste porcelain, gilt bronze, & enameled metal - it's 2 ft, 5 1/2 in. tall. Such 'pendule d'alcove' clocks were designed for bedrooms & were fitted cords that struck on the hour and 1/4 hour when pulled, thus eliminating the need to light a candle to tell time.
