About

Magnificent quality 19th century French Louis XV style ormolu cartel clock with a mechanism signed by H&F Paris. The intricate ormolu body of the cartel clock is beautifully decorated in a foliate-inspired and acanthus motif throughout, flanked by two mythological masks mounted onto scrolls, the front intertwined with trellis work, centered by a dial with enamel Roman Numerals surrounding a round plaque of fine ormolu fretwork medallion of scrolls and maiden heads, all terminating in a maiden mask over a pineapple finial. The movement is signed by H&F Paris. (reference photos) The cartel clock is of extremely fine quality and in very good condition. It has maintained most of its original gilding.
