In 1782 Grand Duke Paul of Russia, the later Tsar Paul I, and his consort, Maria Feodorovna, bought this expen-sive showpiece from the Parisian dealer (marchand-mercier) Dominique Daguerre. With its combination of splendidly worked gilt-bronze (ormolu) and Sèvres porcelain, this clock is a spectacular demonstration of the unrivalled quality of Parisian craftsmanship.
