Cartels, Louis XV, XVIII

Cartel in violin form and its console in marquetry of brown tortoiseshell, brass and bronze.

The particularly fine and precisely chiseled brass inlays are decorated with flowers, foliage and windings.

The ornamental repertoire is particularly focused on the floral and natural theme featured in this cartel. The central bronze with foliage and bouquet, on the console the flowers are taken in a stylized brass heart. Damping the latter are the faces of fauna or Lupercus.

At the top sits a Putti. The dial with twelve enamelled cartridges with Roman numerals. The latter is signed "Saint Martin in Paris".

The mechanism also signed "Saint Martin in Paris", the original wire suspension was not changed later as is the case on many eighteenth century cartels. In working order, strikes the hours and half-hours.
