Cartel Clock „Angels“

Kartelluhr Engelspaar


Vienna, last quarter of the 18th century

carved, mounted and gilt lime wood
anchor escapement, Viennese grande sonnerie on bells, reversing lever for petite sonnerie, repeater, turn-off for strike
26½ in

This Viennese cartel clock impresses with two carved angels, which seem to grow out of the foliage of the case. Their bodies follow the curve of the dial; their smiling faces are turned to each other. In one hand they hold a foliage festoon, in the other a blossom. In an elegant kind of way the carver brought the classic cartel clock shape to figural life. The movement with anchor escapement has a Viennese grande sonnerie and also a reversing lever for petite sonnerie.
