A wonderful Cartier, Belle Epoque era, Mignonette clock, circa 1910.
Constructed on a Sterling Silver body, having 4 Ivory coloured Guilloche enamel panels, each guilloche panel surrounded with a navy blue Champleve enamel bordes. The clock also features an 18ct Gold bezel, delicately enamelled with 36 black dots.
The clock is signed "Cartier, Paris"on the engine turned dial which has Arabic numerals and a railroad minute track.
The lower section of the clock has a delicate silver rope work border above a carved Grey Agate, four footed base. The carved Grey Agate is a wonderful compliment to the Ivory coloured Guilloche ename.
The clock is signed "Cartier" on the interior mechanism back panel. Engraved at the bottom with inventory number 4078 3846 and movement number 75805. The clock has an 8 day mechanism, and has recently returned from having complete overhaul and service at a prestigious Mayfair clock and watch repairer.
This is a wonderful example of the period of which Cartier were the pre eminent and most creative clock makers. Sometimes used as ladie's dressing table clocks, sometimes used as travelling clocks (in appropriate traveling cases of course), these pieces epitomise the the Belle Epoque and Art Deco era's and are admired and collected the world over.
