Very impressive French Boulle clock with intricate brass inlay by Jean Baptiste Delettrez, Paris, circa 1870.

Delettrez noted as working in Rue Charlot, 1870

The high quality French movement de Paris is stamped with Delettrez name and the Medaille D'Argent. The clock will strike hours and half hours on a gong. The gong is unusual in that it hangs from the back door, which in itself is unusual having intricate boulle and brass work.

The wonderful dial is caste with Louis XIV profile, Delettrez signature, the minute numbers from 1-60 around the rim and Classic enamel lozenges displaying blue roman numerals.

The clock case is simply stunning with faux tortoiseshell and intricate brass inlay. All standing on fantastic paw feet.

Andre Charles Boulle born in 1642, a French cabinetmaker is generally considered to be the most remarkable of all French cabinetmakers. His wonderful skill at marquetry and inlaying brass and tortoiseshell became known as Boulle. This method of decoration was extremely popular with furniture designers and also clockmakers, as this Delettrez clock shows.

This clock would certainly be an eye-catching piece of history for any home.

We take great pride in our stock and all of our clocks are sold fully mechanically restored and in working order.
