 Hentschel's " Orleans " floor clock evokes the era of the 19th centuy France when the absolutism of the monarchy gave to the rise of "the Citizen King," Louis Philippe (1830-48), whose rule saw the nation prosper and the ascendancy of the middle class. Thanks to a growing market for consumer goods, fashion of the day was reflected it's exuberance for the Industrial Revolution

In furniture, the most striking elements of the Louis Philippe style are the very clean, simple lines and wide ogee doucine moldings used as moldings, often curved on the ends as well. Feet and brackets terminate in scrolls, and hardware was used sparingly and consisted primarliy of metal escutcheons or keyholes on the faces of drawers and doors.

The " Orleans " model shows a graceful play of straight and curve lines. The crown molding, which echoes the base, gently swoops toward the center, with the uppper section of the door echoing it, while below, the inside bottom door shape reflects this curve. Simple half-ronded turned pilasters adorn the outside edges of the solid cherry clock case. The rich finish complements the aged brass of the simple key escutcheon on the door
