VHRN Newsnote: Rare 19th century St. Vincent de Paul Clock acquired

The Vincentiana Collection at DePaul University's Archives and Special Collections recently acquired this spectacular and very rare mid- 19th century mantel clock featuring Saint Vincent de Paul entrusting a foundling to the care of a waiting Daughter of Charity. The clock movement was manufactured by Samuel Marti and Sons who were active in Paris in the second half of the 19th century. The bronze foundry and the artist remain to be identified.
