French Boulle Style Bracket Clock
This dramatic bracket clock is a grandiose example of French clockmaking. The clock is housed in a richly colored red tortoiseshell case adorned with opulent bronze ormolu accents, showcasing the handsome combination famously characteristic of Boulle-style craftsmanship. A decorative free-form finial surmounts the clock adding further extravagance and creating magnificent shape and elegance. At the center of the clock rests a cast brass dial with bold porcelain cartouche numerals adding exceptional dimension and presence to the clock’s face. Roman numeral hour markers and Arabic minute markers display the time. The retailer’s name, Ovington Brothers Co., New York appears across the dial.
An 8-day, hour and half-hour bell strike movement powers this clock, which bears a full restoration and a one-year warranty.
