Antoine Redier, No.3
The vibrant polychrome enameled globe shows the continents, oceans, countries, cities and numerous other geographical locations, in French, is gimbaled in a gilt-bronze frame that stands on a red marble base and rotates once per day. It is monogrammed within a Cartouche by the maker, Redier, and is dated, 1873, between the cartouche and the equatorial band.
The stationary steel pointer has an applied sun, originates from the North Pole and indicates the time on a gilt-bronze segmented equatorial band that has individually applied porcelain Arabic numbers arranged in two sequences of 1-12 running from east to west
The time-only eight-day movement has a balance wheel escapement that is stamped with the serial number, ‘3’,and is wound by inserting the special key through the lower frame into the globe and then rotating the globe until wound.
Antoine Redier is listed in several reference works including Tardy’s ‘Dictionary of Clockmakers’.
