The cartel clock, in chiseled and gilt bronze, with matt and glossy finish, was made in France in the mid-nineteenth century. With the name cartels are defined those clocks, originally typically French, intended to be hung on a wall and which were produced from the beginning of the 18th century onwards.
This watch, in Louis XV style, presents a refined bronze chisel, with foliage and volute decorations and, on the cimasa, a high-relief with some hunting dogs climbing in a rocky context. The dog placed on the summit has a small deficiency in the right hind leg.
On the movement is stamped “Brocot Breveté”. Louis-Gabriel Brocot (1791-1872) was a great watchmaker in Paris, active from 1820 to 1860. Its name is mainly known for a type of escapement for large watches and pendulums, which it invented around 1840. His eldest son, Achille Brocot (1817– 1878), who perfected and patented the mechanism, directed the workshop at Rue d'Orleans-au-Marais 15, now Rue Charlot, in the mid-19th century.
In a good state of conservation, the clock can easily be exposed in any of your wall, pleasing both side by side with modern furnishings and antique furniture.
