A Fine Louis XV Style Gilt-Bronze Cartel d'Applique, After a Model by Jacques Caffieri.

The white enamel dial inscribed 'Thiout Lainé/A PARIS', with hours in Roman numerals and seconds in Arabic numerals, with pierced gilt-bronze scrolling hands. The twin train movement striking on a bell.

This fine cartel d'applique is surmounted by a sunburst behind a cloudborne cupid driving his dove-drawn chariot above a an undulating pierced foliate panelled case with a figure of Psyche.

Of rocaille form this impressive clock is after the celebrated model by Jacques Caffieri dating from circa 1745, now conserved in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and illustrated in Tardy, "La Pendule Française des origines au Louis XV", Vol. I, p. 190, fig. 1.

The inscription to the dial is for the celebrated eighteenth century horologist Antoine Thiout l'aîné (1692–1767) author of the 'Traité d'horlogerie méchanique et pratique' in 1741 and much admired in the nineteenth century.
