  • Description
    Early 1900's French Boulle Clock. A true masterpiece of craftsmanship, this exquisite timepiece is a symphony of chiseled and gilded bronze, adorned with the richness of imitation tortoise shell and embellished with intricate brass inlays. As you look at it, you will be mesmerized by the fusion of these elements, which come together in harmonious perfection.

    The clock stands regally on a shelf, anchored to the wall, commanding attention with its presence. Its Louis XV style exudes an air of refined elegance, recalling an era when art and beauty were held in high esteem. Marked "THURET PARIS", testimony to its prestigious origin, it carries with it a legacy of excellence that spans the centuries.
    The case, enveloped in the splendor of imitation tortoiseshell, is embraced by chiselled bronze and brass ornaments. Each detail meticulously carved, a testament to the skilled hands that fashioned it. The wooden case and shelf, adorned with gilded bronze applications featuring delicate plant motifs and elegant leaf volutes, evoke a sense of nature's grace, bringing a touch of the outdoors into your home.
    As you admire The dial itself, a gilt-bronze work of art, features Roman numerals on porcelain-enamelled metal plates. The level of craftsmanship is unmatched, a true tribute to the dedication and precision of the craftsmen who brought this stunning creation to life.
    But what truly captures the heart is the crowning glory of the clock – a brass angel with a trumpet and pendulum. A celestial figure adorning the timepiece, it adds an ethereal touch, as if the clock itself were calling out to the heavens. This celestial guardian stands watch, as if protecting time itself, an emblem of eternity and the passage of moments.
    The early 19th-century provenance of this clock only adds to its allure, carrying within it a wealth of history and stories from generations past. With every tick and tock, it weaves together the narratives of those who once cherished its presence.
    Placing this antique clock in your stately living room will elevate the ambiance, transforming it into a salon of grandeur and sophistication. Its beauty is blinding, captivating the eyes and the soul, leaving you enchanted by its allure. It's not merely a time-telling device but a masterpiece of art, an embodiment of the beauty that transcends time and remains eternal.
