Wall-mounted cartel with its base in Boulle marquetry and chased and gilded bronze with moving foliage and scrolls of rocaille flowers. The circular dial in finely chased bronze with 12 enameled cartouches indicates the hours in Roman numerals and the minutes are engraved in bronze in Arabic numerals. The center of the dial is decorated with plant and shell motifs. The sides of the cartel are glazed, revealing the clock mechanism. The clock stands on four cambered feet terminating in scrolls. The rear door opens to reveal Boulle marquetry motifs.

Boulle marquetry was born under Louis XIV (17th century). Although the technique first appeared in the 16th century, it owes its name to André-Charles Boulle (1642-1732), master cabinetmaker at the King's court. Boulle marquetry consists of placing materials such as tortoiseshell, copper, brass, mother-of-pearl, etc. inside wood. More specifically, Boulle marquetry is a veneer of tortoiseshell combined with metal, most often copper or brass.
