"Reclining woman and two cherubs"


The hanging represents a young woman dressed in the Antique, stretched out who has removed her wedding ring and looks at her thoughtful. She is leaning on a flowered mound closing the movement. It surrounds a round-shaped dial, enamelled in white, indicating the hours in Roman numerals and the minutes in Arabic numerals signed "Raingo Fres / à Paris". The oblong-shaped base is richly adorned with leafy windings and flowers, a frieze of gadroons and ribbon rushes.

The pair of cherubs represents love. One, the index finger raised and armed with a club, invites the young woman to be cautious; while the second, equipped with a pair of scissors, prepares, resigned, to cut a wing ... They rest on square-shaped bases decorated in a manner similar to the clock.
