An extremely rare and important Empire gilt bronze mounted Orrery shelf clock. Zacharie Raingo, Paris, Circa 1815.

Executed by Raingo and signed by the retailer Guiton à Paris, this horological masterpiece stands as a testament to the genius of its designer. The columnar case is veneered with fine amboyna burl and is finished to a high French polished surface. The main dial with Roman numerals and inner names and symbols for the days of the week is fitted with a pair of blued steel “moon” hands for the hours and a delicate pointer for the calendar indications. A compensated grid iron pendulum counts the time with great precision. The clock is surmounted by an entablature with an outer ring of gilt bronze Zodiac signs and inner silvered ring indicating the days and names of the month and the four year cycle. The orrery is of four year duration consisting of rotating spheres representing the sun, earth and moon, with an ivory handle below for manual operation. A simple glass dome (an addition) protects the planetarium portion.
