Description

A Boulle, Napoleon III mantel clock, named after Andre Charles Boulle. Andre followed in his fathers footsteps and became a cabinet maker. In 1672 he was appointed court artist and took up residence in the Louvre, the Royal Palace in Paris. He was the first artist to be allowed more than one artistic discipline because he needed more than one to complete his works of art. His workshop was famous for producing furniture with flower designs sophisticately executed in marquetry (inlay) with wood, metal, natural shell and tusk.
