Marquetry Mouldings by Richard Higgins

There is a small group of very fine late 17th century bracket clocks by various important makers that used cases made by a 1 or more closely linked Huguenot makers.

They follow very much the form of case normally associated with standard 8 day ¼ repeating bracket clocks that were produced in very large numbers at that time. This article provides an insight into the craft of marquetry and shows the reproduction of a section of moulding.
