Longcase clock (grandfather clock)

The style of the clock can be attributed to the Rococo. For the aesthetic design of the watch case I used many decorative techniques. On the doors bright inlay. There are sculptures of the antique plan. The case of oak is decorated with artistic elements, like twisted side columns, figured legs, curved doors.

The upper part of the longcase clock is finished by the wooden figure of the harpist, and on the top of this composition the winged Sirin from the mammoth's bone soars. To the magical sounds of the harp and the singing of the Sirin joined the amurs from the aquamarine decorating the top of the side columns.

On the bottom door there is an Inlaid panel on the plot Auguste Renoir's "Dance at Bougival". The Eiffel Tower in the background completes the Parisian city landscape.

Work on the clock is not over.
