Cartel clock, Jacques Caffieri, c. 1741

gilding, h 64.5cm × w 33.0cm × d 11.0cm More details

The renowned artist Caffieri signed the case of this cartel (or wall) clock, just like a painter signs a painting. The asymmetrical Rococo case shows the figure of Diana, goddess of the moon, looking down tenderly upon the sleeping Endymion. They are set in an imaginary framework of rocailles, plants, architectural elements and abstract motifs.
