A French Art Nouveau gilt bronze mantel clock and accompanying pair of three-branch candelabra by Charles Émile Jonchéry. The curvilinear shape of the clock, as well as the woman''s face in relief below the clock face, her tresses that merge with writhing vines and and the decorative vines and flowers that appear throughout the piece, exemplify the Art Nouveau aesthetic. Charles Émile Jonchéry designed numerous sculptural objets d''art that often combined female figures and floral motifs in the ornamentation of vases, lamps, clocks, inkwells, or fountains. These figural candlesticks and clock feature an asymmetrical design with characteristic Art Nouveau motifs: dreamy women and whiplash lines. The use of the pansy flower, whose French word "pensée" means both "thought" and "pansy", was a way of making these women into mysterious muses of thought, encouraging their owner to meditate on the passage of time and the imperative to live life to its fullest. Pictured in: "Dynamic Beauty: Sculpture of Art Nouveau Paris", by Macklowe Gallery, The Studley Press, 2011, p. 150.
