Beaux-arts clock, Musee d'Orsay, Paris

Massive beaux-arts clock hanging inside the Musee d’Orsay in Paris, France. The clock dates to around 1898 and originally overlooked the passenger platforms when the building was used as a train station. When the space was converted into one of Paris’ best art museums in the mid-1980s, the clock was incorporated into the new layout.

The clock can be seen in the center of the image below, which shows the Gare d’Orsay around 1900.
