A FINE FRENCH CHAMPLEVE ENAMELLED AND PAINTED PORCELAIN FOUR-GLASS MANTEL CLOCK GARNITURE SAMUEL MARTI ET CIE, PARIS, WITH PORCELAIN DECORATED BY LEFRANC, LIMOGES, CIRCA 1890 The circular eight-day bell striking movement with anchor escapement regulated by porcelain panel inset gilt disc bob pendulum incorporating Brocot-type regulation to suspension, the backplate with Samuel Marti et Cie, MEDAILLE D'BRONZE roundel to centre over stamped numbers 2553, 4 11 to lower margin, the circular porcelain dial painted with musical score and floral swags to centre within vertical Arabic hour numeral chapter ring and with scroll-pierced gilt hands within scroll cast and champleve enamelled bezel decorated in varying tones of blue and white with foliate designs, the case of stretched octagonal section with twin handled urn surmount painted with Cupid resting to the polychrome leafy scroll enamelled caddy surmount flanked by three pairs of turned finials, the frieze with floral garland painted panel to front and with enamelled leafy trails to sides over bevel-glazed front door flanked by slender polychrome decorated Corinthian baluster pillar uprights and rectangular canted porcelain panels each painted with a scantily clad Classical female dancer within gilt rococo upper and floral swag lower margins and signed Lefranc to lower corner, the rear with conforming glazed door flanked by fixed bevelled glass panels, the skirt base matching the frieze but painted with a pair of cherubs to front panel, on six engine-milled compressed bun feet; the twin-handles urn side pieces each with foliate knop to the fixed domed polychrome enamelled cover and conforming waisted neck over shouldered ovoid porcelain body decorated with conforming Classical females attended by putti, further signed Lefranc to lower margin and with landscape views to verso, on waisted ring-collared upright terminating in a ogee-outline enamelled disc set onto a hexagonal base further decorated with enamel infill between the rounded angles to the front three panels over disc feet. The clock 46.5cm (18.25ins) high, 24cm (9.5ins) wide, 15cm (6ins) deep, the side pieces 38cm (15ins) high, 14cm (5.5ins) wide. Provenance: Private collection, East Midlands. Samuel Marti was a prolific maker of movements and roulant blancs and is noted by Leigh Extence as working from circa 1860 at Le Pays de Montbeliard, Paris. Along with Japy Freres and Roux they set up a business in 1863 to market their movements to such firms as L'Epee. Their Paris address was Rue Vieille-du-Temple from 1870. The porcelain painter 'Lefranc' appears to be unrecorded however a very closely related garniture (with movement by Kremer, Paris) was sold at Christies, New York at their sale entitled Living With Art 15th June 2016 (lot 248) for $5,000. This garniture, as well as been signed 'Lefranc', had green printed marks 'P.P' for Paroutaud Freres, Limoges. From this it would be reasonable to suggest that the porcelain elements decorating the current lot also originated from Paroutaud Freres of Limoges.
