Gilt Bronze Wall Cartel clock, Louis XVI period
Moisy à Paris
Jean Moisy (1714-1782) is one of the most important Parisian clockmakers of the 18th century. He worked with the bronziers Caffieri and Osmond, and furnished two clocks to King Louis XV for the Château de Saint-Hubert. Working with the influential marchands-merciers of the time, Moisy built up an exceptional clientele, including members of the aristocracy such as the Duke de Praslin, the Prince de Talmont and the Duchess d’Enville, and financiers such as the powerful Randon de Boisset, Marin de La Haye and Paris de Montmartel.
