19th century French ormolu Cartel wall clock, circa 1890.

This cartel clock has a beautifully executed case in the form of a musical lyre, with floral swag and, an impression of the Sun King, Louis XIV adorning the top of the clock.

The white enamel dial again beautifully enhanced with Arabic numerals, numbers in black and quarter hours in red Arabic. Wonderful pierced and engraved decorative hands in the fleur de lys pattern, this would go hand in hand with the impression of the Sun King.

The mechanism is top of the line movement of Paris, made and stamped by Samuel Marti and was awarded the Medaille D'Argent at the Paris exhibition in 1889. The clock will strike hours and half hours on a bell of delicate tone.

This clock has a fabulous original color which has differing tones throughout. This is visually a very impressive clock, if you saw this is someone else's home you would be talking about it for a week!

As with all of our clocks from Timepiece in Dublin, this clock will be sold fully mechanically restored.
