Art Inlay Clock – Design of Giovanni Battista Foggini and Balthasar Permoser

Probably the biggest difference between luxury in today’s world and luxury in the past is the relative disappearance of custom or bespoke products. In the 18th and 19th centuries much of what was considered luxury was custom made.  The wealthy class purchased custom clothing, had jewelry made to their specifications and even had custom fragrances created for themselves. Today most luxury goods are produced and sold.

There are still custom clothiers, shirt makers and boot makers but the common notion of custom made has essentially vanished.  This has meant the disappearance for the vast majority of local watchmakers and jewelers, custom dress and shirt makers and other custom made products.   Not with this Italian maker of Art Inlay Clocks and Furniture.

To follow, enhance and renew the great Italian tradition, harmonize the styles into aesthetic and exclusive results which are totally world famous for the mastery of its workmanship, the inspiration with which it fulfills every project and the sensitivity in treating and arranging the most precious materials.

Ashli Jewelers is proud to introduce this Art Inlaid Clock by hand semi-precious stones (natural gems – Warranted) with 24 karat gold plated brass decorations. Design of Giovanni Battista Foggini and Balthasar Permoser, before 1689.

The Art of Inlay – Handmade Clocks with Consoles

Probably the biggest difference between luxury in today’s world and luxury in the past is the relative disappearance of custom or bespoke products. In the 18th and 19th centuries much of what was considered luxury was custom made.  The wealthy class purchased custom clothing, had jewelry made to their specifications and even had custom fragrances created for themselves. Today most luxury goods are produced and sold.

There are still custom clothiers, shirt makers and boot makers but the common notion of custom made has essentially vanished.  This has meant the disappearance for the vast majority of local watch makers and jewelers, custom dress and shirt makers and other custom made products.   Not with this Italian maker of Art Inlay Clocks and Furniture.

To follow, enhance and renew the great Italian maerquetry tradition, harmonize the styles into aesthetic and exclusive results which are totally world famous for the mastery of its workmanship, the inspiration with which it fulfils every project and the sensitivity in treating and arranging the most precious materials.

Works which always retain all the exceptional cultural inheritance which has made Italian marquetry, and that of Bergamo in particular, the absolute reference point for quality and imagination, scrupulousness and constant striving after excellence, in materials as in arrangements, in structural choice as in finishings.

This is why the wonderful creations embellishes the most beautiful buildings and houses in the world, environments intended for high-level meetings and private rooms where everything refers to the artistic sensitivity and taste of the owner. One in which every work, starting from the extremely famous clocks, establishes a favored dialogue between those who experience it and those who merely observe.

The secret of the works lies in restating the expressive themes that have made Italian art unique in the world, then adding precise harmonious references to North European, Oriental and Middle Eastern cultural styles dating back from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.   The effect is grandiose due to its elegance and inspiration. It communicates not only wealth and authority, but passion for things made in a thoroughly workmanlike fashion which dominate and challenge time.

Even today the entire manufacturing process is done by hand, starting from a very stringent selection and pre-processing of materials, semi-precious stones, fine woods such as briar, ebony, rosewood and palisander, mint gold, mother-of-pearl, tortoiseshell and shells from the deepest ocean beds are used.

Materials which come to life a precise design, in which each matching follows and aesthetic and expressive logic which boats centuries of history and which brings to light values which no machine or artificial intelligence can ever equal.  As it is easy to image makes use of true specialists, lovers of beautiful things and collectors from all over the world with whom an equally intense dialogue to that guaranteed by their own work is established.

Clock & Console “Louie XIV” Style (1643 – 1715) – Realization of M. Passerat

Probably the biggest difference between luxury in today’s world and luxury in the past is the relative disappearance of custom or bespoke products. In the 18th and 19th centuries much of what was considered luxury was custom made.  The wealthy class purchased custom clothing, had jewelry made to their specifications and even had custom fragrances created for themselves. Today most luxury goods are produced and sold.

There are still custom clothiers, shirt makers and boot makers but the common notion of custom made has essentially vanished.  This has meant the disappearance for the vast majority of local watch makers and jewelers, custom dress and shirt makers and other custom made products.   Not with this Italian maker of Art Inlay Clocks and Furniture.

Ashli Jewelers is honored to inform that we are offering a restoration of a beautiful and rare Louis XIV style pendulum clock (1643 – 1715), which was created by the famous furniture maker M. Passerat.

Permission has been given to reproduce this clock, only in a limited quantity.  In reconstructing the pendulum clock the reproduction of this clock will follow the techniques used by the ancient masters respecting the choice of quality materials. The inlay has been exactly reproduced by hand using the Charles-Andre Boulle Style (1642 – 1732), and enriched by the use of superb engraving.

The bronze decorations have been made in “lost wax” (the ancient way) and plated in 24kt gold.  They have been chiseled by hand adding prominence to all the details and giving it an unmatched great artistic value.

Luigi XIV Style

Due to the limited quantities being produced (every piece with an individual number) and letter of authenticity, we are offering this unique opportunity to only those guests who we know that would be able to estimate the preciousness of this time piece.  Offering Price is $29,995.95.
