French Ormolu and Champlevé Mantel Clock, retailed by Tiffany & Co., movement by Samuel Marti et Cie, Paris, ca. 1880-90

Product Description:

Boudoir clock with a 'waisted' gilt bronze case having blue gold and tan flowers and vines in champlevé against a lavender colored champlevé ground on the front and sides of the case. There is a capped urn finial with ormolu handles resting on a fluted gold platform atop the case. Ormolu acanthus leaves highlight the edges of the case which tapers towards the base and rests on long gilt acanthus leaf feet. The floral lavender case is widest around the dial and below the dial narrows and includes a panel with cross-hatching and a decorative bag-pipe in the center. The back of the case is gilt bronze with a round movement access door.

The dial is embossed gilt brass with painted Roman hour chapter in cartouche form, floral half hour markers, steel French 'Roman' hands and the dial center painted with gilt and ruby colored geometric designs. Dial is marked for "Tiffany & Co. New York, France".

Movement is tradition round, spring driven French movement marked 'made in France' and the medaille de bronze medal won by Samuel Marti at the 1860 Paris Exposition and used for decades thereafter. Movement is of eight day duration and strikes on the hour and half hour.
