A fine Louis XV ormolu cartel clock, the ormolu is finely cast and chased, with rococo C-scrolls supporting the arcadian love scene of noble shepherdess and supplicant suitor. The ormolu retains its original gilding, and the clock face its original enamel.

The ormolu is marked with the crowned "C" poincon, denoting that it was made between 1745 and 1749.

Henri-Charles Balthazar (Charles, pere l'aine) was a member of a large family of clockmakers. He became a Master in 1717 and worked first in the Place Dauphine and then in the Rue du Roule (1747-1772).
