EXCEPTIONAL PENDULE DE L'AMERIQUE PAR DEVERBERIE... - Lot 317 - Herbette
EXCEPTIONAL PENDULE DE L'AMERIQUE PAR DEVERBERIE in chased, gilded and patinated bronze, decorated with an Indian huntress seated on the shaft of the movement. She is dressed in a feathered loincloth, crowned with a feathered crown and adorned with armbands and guilloche bracelets on her wrists and ankles. A quiver and arrows are strapped to her back. She holds a bow in her right hand and a spear in her left, striking down an alligator at her feet. Her eyes are enameled glass. The dial is white enamel, showing hours and minutes in Roman numerals. It is signed "DEVERBERIE à PARIS". The set surmounts an arch full of foliage with a pecking bird. In the center, an Antique-style scene with 3 figures. The arcature rests on 4 feline hocked feet set on a gilded bronze base decorated with a frieze of ibexes and figures. (In its original condition, with some wear to the gilding and minor damage). Early 19th century. H.63 W.42 D.12. Provenance: Private collection from the North of France. The design for this clock, entitled "L'Amérique", was registered by the foundry-chiseler J.S. DEVERBERIE on 3 pluviose An VII (January 22, 1799). It is preserved in the Cabinet des Estampes of the B.N.F. Our clock in this version, with its base entirely decorated in the arcature, is the only model signed by DEVERBERIE identified today. It is presented "as is", with its original old gilding and wear and tear. Bibliography. P.
