Our Fine Clocks, Barometers and Scientific Instruments sale goes on view this weekend. Join us Sunday 17 February at Donnington Priory | 10am-2pm. Highlight | A fine French Louis XVI ormolu mounted skeleton clock with full annual calendar, moonphase and twin thermometers by Hubert Martinet. Hubert Martinet is a fine but enigmatic clockmaker who was active both in London and Paris during the 1770’s and 1780’s. Although little is recorded of his specific activities it is known that he worked as both a horloger and a mercier and was probably a descendant of the Martinot clockmaking family, the first of whom was Gilbert Martinot who is recorded as clockmaker to Henry III in 1572.
