An early pendule religieuse by Louis Baronneau AParis with an ebonised fruitwood-veneered (poirier noirci) case, made c. 1665-70. The case is of classic design with an arched pediment and arched windows to the sides. The velvet-covered dial has a gilt brass Roman chapter ring, pierced gilt hands and a gilt brass cartouche bearing the name of the maker. The two-day going movement is driven by a double-train barrel and has verge escapement with a silk-suspended pendulum between cycloidal cheeks. The striking train is regulated by a countwheel on the backplate and indicates the hour fully and the half hour with a single stroke on a bell, placed on top of the case. The maker: Louis Baronneau Paris was both clock and watchmaker. There is for instance a watch made by him in the musée Dupuy. Master clockmaker since 1653, he became horloger du roi et de la reine in 1661. It is known he made two clocks and sixteen watches for a number of Russian diplomats.
