Lovely small well made ormolu cartel wall clock with eight day movement and quarter repeat.

The dial

The 9-cm enamel dial has Arabic numerals and is signed Martinot A Paris. The ormolu brass fleur-de-lys hands are pierced and engraved.

The movement

The movement is driven by a spring barrel and has a duration of eight days. It is being regulated by an early cilinder escapement in combination with a balance. By pulling the cord, an auxiliary spring is wound which activates the quarter repeating striking on two bells.

The ormolu case

The annular concave sided ormolu case is surmounted by a suspension hoop with a bow and trailing roses below it. The bottom case is adourned with acanthus branches.
