Clock representing the "Coronation of Love" or "Love and Psyche" after a model of Claude Michallon. Psyche, dressed in a wet drapery held by a belt, leans over the central bollard in griotte marble to crown Amour recognizable by his wings and his quiver at his waist. The gilded bronze dial with Roman numerals is set in the terminal decorated with a lyre surrounded by oak leaves. The rectangular base and pedestal are decorated with friezes of leaves in doucine, crowns, garlands, trophies of arms and rosettes. The whole is carried by four small winged feet in gilded bronze. It is a production dating from the 19th century. This figure was made by Michallon (1751-1799) during the Directoire period after an antique marble from the Capitol in Rome dating from the 1st or 2nd century AD, after a Greek original from the Hellenistic period. It was a great success due to its grace and the popularity of the subject of Love and Psyche in the 19th century. It was declined many times notably by Feuchère and Thomire. Some examples are kept in famous museums such as the Château de Fontainebleau, the Musée Marmottan-Monet, the Hôtel de la Marine in Paris or the Royal collections in England.
