An exceptional 18th century French Horloge De Parquet, or tall case clock, from Pays de Bresse in Burgundy. The case is made of solid walnut with bookmatched wood at the base and a door with inset panels of beautiful burled elm. In two parts: the curved shaped body has paneled sides and the top has the original glass panes and a chapeau de gendarme crown. Each section accented with inlaid marquetry details. The enamel clock face has hand-painted Roman numerals and a decorative cast bronze surround with a rooster. Original seven day Morbier movement with escapement at the back, strikes on the hour and once on the half. Professionally cleaned and in working order. Superb craftsmanship with pegged and mortise and tenon construction. Beautiful wood grain with waxed patina. Pine as a secondary wood. The enamel has small losses and scratches. There is hand written note on the inside of the door dated 1866 indicating the clock was repaired by Berthet and his workmanship was guaranteed. Circa 1760-1780. 95.5"H x 20"W x 9.25"D
