Lot Overview

鐘為銅質鍍金製成,做工細緻,華麗璀璨。整體共分三層,分別裝飾不同景物,上發條後,各處隨之轉動。最頂端飾鑲鑽鳳梨,隨著音樂,下方的葉子漸漸展開,可看見裡面的八仙繞著中央玻璃水法柱逆時針轉動,同時間第二層儀仗隊順時針轉動,最下層的一面有仙人報時,另面有水法轉動,搭配自然景物穿行,整體設計精美,富麗堂皇,極具巧思。

西方機械鐘錶最早於十六世紀,由傳教士作為禮物獻給中國帝王,西洋鐘錶也成為打開紫禁城的第一塊敲門磚。至清代,宮內不僅收藏大量機械鐘錶,同時開始自產,並由最初的仿製逐步形成自我風格。這些鐘錶除計時功能,更重要的是精美裝飾及巧妙的機械設計,利用機械學、動力學原理,以水法、轉花、西洋人物等機械轉動配以計時,精美華麗,展現高超技藝。
