By Henri Vian of Paris
Constructed in finely cast, chased and gilt ormolu cases, the convex enamel circular dials of the clock, and also the barometer hand painted with floral swags, and signed by Henri Vian of Paris and the instrument maker, Baudet of Paris; the cases are informed by designs from the Louis XVI period, and of symmetrical serpentine shape, with urn finials, flanked by female caryatids, the pierced trellis work to the lower parts terminating in bold acanthus leaves; the clock having the eight day movement, the hands in gilt filigree work, striking the hours, marked in Arabic numerals, on a bell, and bearing the clockmaker’s name, Baudet; the barometer, of the aneroid type, having the gradations from ‘Très Sec’, through ‘Variable’ to ‘Tempete’.
Baudet is recorded as Paris based in Brian Loomes ‘Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World’, published 2006 by NAG Press.
