Paris, 670 x 800 mm

, circa 1860

An extremely rare and striking frame clock with half hour/hour strike and a marvellous musical movement with an automaton that plays six tunes: "Procession in La Madeleine, Paris"


Case: wood, carved and gold-painted, glazed rectangular aperture for the automaton, colourful painted figures. Dial: enamel. Movm.: circular full plate brass movement, 2 barrels, 1 hammer / 1 gong, count wheel, short pendulum. Musical Movement: large pin cylinder, governor, 77 vibration blades. Automaton mechanism: musical mechanism works on demand, drive via barrel and governor.

This impressive and exquisite musical clock picture is remarkable not least because of the unusually clear and resonant sound produced by the movement. The movement offers a choice of six tunes; it can be set to play one tune continuously or to change between the different tunes. The clock is also fitted with an automaton: the individual figures and groups of a first communion procession move from right to left (on a kind of treadmill) through the parish church of La Madeleine (Sainte-Marie-Madeleine) in Paris.

The interior view of the church was inspired by a colour lithograph by the famous painter and lithographer Philippe Benoist (1813-1905). Benoist was one of the greatest artists of his time who showed interior views and large epic scenes in elaborately hand-coloured lithographs. The design of the Madelaine church is very unusual for a Christian chapel: the exterior is inspired by the appearance of Roman temples, the interior with its three cupolas reminds the viewer of the vaulted main room in a Roman bath. This is partly due to the many different types of use that were planned during the building time of the church from 1764 until 1845.
