A Fine French Gilt Striking Cartel Clock

A Fine French Gilt Striking Cartel Clock

 The case profusely decorated with gilt brass mounts topped by an urn and pineapple flanked by two horned rams heads supporting a central swag with two further pineapple finials to the sides, the base and sides with grill patterned sound frets, the base terminating in a floral motif.  The convex white enamel dial with blue Roman hour numerals, outer minutes chapter and bold five minute markers, the winding squares to the centre and having highly decorative, asymmetrically scrolling gilt hands, the whole surrounded by a heavy cast hinged bezel with a bevel-edged convex glass.  The eight day French movement with anchor escapement sounding the hours and half hours.
