Large Belle Époque Style Antique French Ormolu Cartel Clock by Bertoud

$30,214.87

About

This beautiful Belle Époque style Cartel clock is notable for its stunning depiction of a sunburst, which is depicted in vivid golden gilt bronze. The central circular enamel dial is set within an elaborately detailed ormolu case depicting multiple figures, birds, a chariot, acanthus leave scrolls and surmounted by the sunburst design. The dial itself features Roman and Arabic numerals, and is marked 'Bertoud a Paris'. The European Belle Époque began in the late 19th century and continued until the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. The period was, in fact, given its name after World War One, as it was felt to be a Golden Age in contrast to the horror of the war. The Belle Époque was emblematic of an optimistic time, when arts, technology, science and cultural innovations were encouraged and flourished. The art and design that emerged from the period is typified by the sense of freedom and pleasure that it evokes.
