Armingaud l'ainé, who was based in the Rue Meslay, Bd. de la Porte, St. Martin between 1806 to 1813.
This festive vine-festooned clock, incorporated in a Roman altar and capped by a vase of roses sacred to Venus, is supported by a vine-enriched plinth that is wreathed by Venus's pearl-string. Vines also deck bacchantes-masks flanking the pedestal's hollowed sides, which is centred by a bas-relief of a wine-bearing youth attending a Bacchante. This clock is closely related to a design by de Verberie, inscribed 'Inventé par De Verberie et C.gnie Tout se fait dans leur Manufacture le Bronze Dorure et l'Horlogerie Rue des fossés du Temple No.47 à Paris, executed around 1810, which is in the Bibliothèque Doucet in Paris.
