Stunning Louis XVI Cartel Clock
by Samuel Marti

~ Antique French - Circa 1890 ~

~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~

A lovely decorative Cartel wall clock. It is in the style of Louis XVI and is beautifully modelled in brass. It is modelled as an acanthus wreath in which the dial is placed with a bow above. The top of the case has a handled urn with a floral finial. A bunch of acanthus leaves hang down from the base of the clock.   

The dial is a beautiful convex, cream enamel dial with blue lettering and is complete with the original fretted gilt brass hands and convex glass. It is signed by the retailer A Chapus who is listed as working from 86 Rue De Rivolli, Paris from 1880 to 1915.    

The movement is by Samuel Marti and has the clockmakers mark on the backplate along with the retailers mark A Chapus. It is of excellent quality as you would expect from this maker and is in excellent condition having been completely overhauled by our clock maker - click the video clip below to hear the bell strike and see the clock running. It runs for 8 days on one wind and strikes half hourly on a bell and is complete with original pendulum.

Condition of the case is excellent with a bright and clean finish, some wear and very minor tarnish / discolouration in places.  Dial is also in excellent condition with just some very slight chipping at the right hand winding hole. This is a stunning clock ready to grace your home, lots of pictures below. 

  

Complete with original pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.

About us - All of our clocks are original antiques, we source most of our clocks in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK. We prefer to buy our clocks in original 'dirty' condition. We then clean the cases using a technique we have developed over many years. We employee two qualified clockmakers who overhaul the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they will run trouble free.
