Superb Louis XV period cartel in 18th century "Boulle marquetry".
This beautiful timepiece has a floral decoration in golden brass, mother-of-pearl and tortoiseshell (tinted red, green, blue and black).
There is also a rich "rococo" ornamentation of gilded bronzes with patterns of shells, foliage, flowers, volutes, mascarons, dolphin heads ...
Inside we find a refined decoration of "paving in perspective" on the parquet.
The dial has enamelled cartridges. Underneath there is an eagle slaying a gilt bronze serpent.
At the top there is a representation of the goddess Hebe and the eagle of Jupiter.
