Longcase clock, Anonymous, Andries Vermeulen (uurwerkmaker), c. 1715 - c. 1725

wood (plant material), h 284.5cm. More details

This exceptional clock case is veneered with boulle-work, a form of marquetry using various metals and tortoiseshell. This technique was rarely practised in the Netherlands. Perhaps the clock was made by a French or German cabinetmaker active for a few years in Amsterdam. It houses a complex clock movement that can play fourteen melodies on seven separate music rolls, all of which survive.
