Description

A beautiful half-meter high mantle clock,

made in the second half of the 19th century in Boulle technique and style,

which is the most expensive and effective ebony style in history.

 

Very richly ornamented with a complicated, characteristic for Boulle style, ornament,

made entirely in a labour-intensive metal inlaying technique.

 

Additionally, decorated with numerous expressive fittings, Gorgona's head below the face of the digiplate

and crowned with a seated figure of a putt climbing the Horn of Plenty.

The whole is complemented by impressive glazed sides and front of the clock,

separate porcelain plates each hour on a digital plate,

and a beautiful, so-called Sunny Pendulum.
