Wall clock with its base in Boulle marquetry and chased and gilded bronze of moving foliage and scrolls of rocaille flowers. The circular dial in finely chased bronze with 12 enamelled cartouches indicates the hours in Roman numerals and the minutes are engraved in the bronze in Arabic numerals. The center of the dial is decorated with plant motifs and shells. The sides of the cartel are glazed to reveal the mechanism of the clock. The clock rests on four cambered feet ending in volutes. The back door opens to reveal Boulle marquetry motifs.

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