Parquet Regulator by Jacques-Nicolas Baradelle in Paris

Exceptional Parquet Regulator in three parts, in amaranth and ebony wood veneer with a pattern of braces in the frames. The violin-shaped sheath, attributable to Balthazard Lieutaud, is surmounted by a so-called "lantern" clock, itself adorned with a representation of Diana the huntress holding her bow. Jacques-Nicolas Baradelle's movement comprises three dials: the largest is bordered by a circle around which the minutes from 1 to 60 in Arabic numerals are engraved; in the center of this same dial is fixed another annular dial around which are engraved the hours in Roman numerals from I to XII with, between them vertical rods indicating the quarters or the half-hour for those being surmounted by a small circle; a third annular dial appearing above is bordered by a circle around which are engraved the seconds in Arabic numerals from 1 to 60, themselves beaten by a blackened steel hand, which attests to a so-called "ankle escapement" , therefore a sign of high quality. The ankle-type escapement movement features a Huygens-style, flexible, cycloidal long-blade suspension. The lens is adorned with a mask of Dionysus, the Greek god of the vine and wine. It presents a rich ornamentation of very finely chiseled and gilded bronze such as: foliated shells and volutes, ironwork, mascarons, acanthus leaves, gadrooned angles, angle scraps with mascarons, mask with rooster heads, and ironwork frames on crazy game backgrounds. The bezel, flanked by two cupids, one holding a heart and the other an arrow, is surrounded by leafy scrolls and adorned with a woman's mask.
