Very pretty alcove cartel in gilded bronze, also serving as an alarm clock, with ringing on demand.
Beautiful white enameled dial, with blue Roman numerals for the hours and black Arabic numerals for the minutes. It has two beautiful pierced and gilded hands, placed in front of the numbered brass circle (used for the alarm clock).
A gilded bronze box houses the on-demand strike movement and the alarm clock. Made up of foliage and asymmetrical curves and counter-curves, as well as fruits emerging from a group of foliage.
Openwork timepiece grilles cut with leaves and flowers.
The original movement is engraved on the rear plate "Paillard in Paris": Jean-Baptiste Paillard, received master in 1717.
Work from the Louis XV period, in good condition, a little wear to the gilding.
The movement has been serviced and works perfectly.
Quite rare in these dimensions, even more so with the alarm clock and ringtone on demand.
