Clock depicting the "Coronnement d'Amour" or "Amour et Psyché" after a model by Claude Michallon. Psyché, dressed in a wet drapery held in place by a belt, leans over the griotte marble central bollard to crown Amour, recognizable by his wings and quiver at his waist. The gilded bronze dial with Roman numerals is set in the bollard decorated with a lyre surrounded by oak leaves. The rectangular base and pedestal are adorned with friezes of doucine leaves, wreaths, garlands, trophies of arms and rosettes. The whole is supported by four small gilded bronze winged claw feet. It dates from the 19th century. Created by Michallon (1751-1799) during the Directoire period, after an ancient marble from the Capitol in Rome dating from the 1st or 2nd century A.D., based on a Greek original from the Hellenistic period, this figure was a great success due to its grace and the popularity of the subject of Love and Psyche in the 19th century. It was reproduced many times, notably by Feuchère and Thomire. Some examples are held in renowned museums such as the Château de Fontainebleau, the Musée Marmottan-Monet, the Hôtel de la Marine in Paris and the Royal Collections in England.
