Chevalier & Comp. 日內瓦,機芯號 3981,錶殼號 3981,50 mm,71 g,約 1790

稀世非凡的鑲半珍珠黃金琺瑯早期冠輪懷錶"La Fontaine D'Amour"


Chevalier & Comp. à Gèneve

, Movement No. 3981, Case No. 3981, 50 mm, 71 g, circa 1790

An exquisite gold enamel verge pocket watch studded with half pearls "La Fontaine D'Amour"


Case: 18k gold Dial: enamel. Movm.: full plate movement, extra thin, chain/fusee, verge escapement, three-arm brass balance.

The back of this charming pocket watch is decorated with an exquisite polychrome enamel medallion. A fine enamel miniature against a lavishly engine-turned background with translucent cobalt blue enameling shows a scene after the painting "La Fontaine D'Amour" by Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806): a couple rushes to the fountain of love. During our 85th auction on May 12, 2012 we presented a pocket watch signed Gaudy à Paris with a nearly identical scene (lot 144). Lot 246 of our 88th auction on November 16, 2013 was a gold enamel snuff box by Guidon, Gide & Blondet à Genève that had the same motif. Unfortunately we do not know the names of the fine emailleurs who created these striking works of art; the appreciation of their skills, however, has persisted through time and is is proven by the loving care these pieces were treated and passed through the generations with.

The company Chevalier & Cie or Chevalier & Compagnie was listed in the records of Geneva in the 1790s. We cannot say yet whether Jacob Chevalier - who worked in Geneva during the second half of the 18th century, on his own at first and later with Mathey - is in any way connected to Chevalier & Cie but looking at the chronology, it is quite possible that Chevalier & Mathey (1786-1792) was the forerunner of this company.
