In addition to its aesthetic aspect, this duo of clock models constitutes a first-rate source of documentation on the history of French watchmaking. Put in colors, these works were to be used as model to a French watchmaker who could thus propose various types of clock to his customers. The whole is a magnificent panorama on the art of clock making during the Restoration.
