  • Catalogue Essay

    This fresh to the market dome clock is decorated with the polychrome cloisonné enamel scene “Pandas” as confirmed on the Extract from the Archives. The three horizontal panels have a vibrant light blue and green background suggestive of a mountain setting, while each panel has a black and white panda in various activities of their day. Sitting in reddish brown trees, one enjoys a bamboo meal, another surveys the scene, and the third is in relaxed repose. The dome features their frolicking cousins the red panda. The workmanship and technique is exquisite with each panda face a wonderful representation of thought and mind. The white dial with gilt chapter ring with Roman numerals and the Calatrava cross is surrounded by four plaques each with leaf motif.

    The present clock features the caliber 17”250 photo-electric cell. The dome is equipped with a rotating solar panel that is connected to a converter, which in turn powers the clock.

    In exceptional condition, the cloisonné enamel is free from restoration and defects and is a fine example of the quality and expertise required to make such a work of art. The enamel work is signed “FTille” for “France Tille” who has been involved in watchmaking since 1976. As a child, she was interested in drawing, and studied applied arts, ultimately setting up her own workshop. Today, she has exhibited works in Europe and her skill and technique vividly articulates the panda’s expression.
