    One more Rococo French clock
    Phillipe H. Mourey, French 1840-1910, was a master French Sculptor. He was best known for his association with Japy Freres & Co. the noted 19th C. Paris Clockmaker. His clock cases are usually gilt metal case and marked P H Mourey. He Decorated with rococo and classical motifs, flowers etc. Inset with painted in Watteau style porcelain plaques, this clock has no porcelain plaques. The reseller of this clock was also a Freres, Levi (Couldn't find any evidence that Japy and Levi were related). The clock keeps pretty accurate time. It is 19" long, 14" tall, and 5" in depth. I don't know who the personage on the clock finial is holding the globe and going over his charts but I call it my Charlemagne clock who is my 34th great grandfather (Mom's side) according to my genealogy, and the first Holy Roman emperor.
