This monumental longcase regulator clock crafted in the resplendent Louis XVI style is both a marvel of horological innovation and a paragon of artistic finesse. This timepiece, reminiscent of Jean-Henri Riesener's famed régulateur de parquet in the collection of the Louvre, offers an air of refined enchantment to the timekeeping process. 

While most regulator clocks were created purely for function rather than aesthetics, this timepiece is set apart by its equally ornate case. Emerging from a celestial star-studded globe, the clock's circular face features intricate relief casting and enamel Roman numeral numbers. The twin-train clock movement, adorned with the radiant visage of Apollo and a sunburst pendulum, lends a touch of Classical inspiration. Playful putti surmount the elaborate timepiece, with their gilt robes draping across the sides of the clock's globe-shaped apex.

The clock's mahogany case assumes an oblong tapering shape and is accentuated by gilt-bronze framed glass panels. The front glass is adorned with a gilt ribbon-tied trailing flower design. As one observes the clock from various angles, fluted pilasters with neoclassical capitals create a sense of regal grandeur. Each glass panel allows glimpses of the clock's two-train movement, showcasing the timepiece's expert craftsmanship. Regulator clocks have been renowned as the most accurate of the weight-driven clocks since they were first created, and this magnificent timepiece highlights this horological achievement. Crafted with precision and attention to detail, this longcase clock serves as a tribute to the skilled clockmakers of the Louis XVI period, marrying masterful artistry with horological expertise.
