The Cupid Fromanteel table clock (c.1660-1665)
This, along with three other exquisite Fromanteel table clocks will be displayed together - almost certainly for the first time - during the exhibition. The quartet all follow equal patterns of construction, in an architectural style with Corinthian capitals, although the Cupid Clock is the only one with a velvet dial and lambrequin plaque; a typically continental practice and style at the time.
Innovation & Collaboration: Monday 3rd September - Friday 14th September, free admission for all.
