Hubert Martinet French

Martinet was active both in London and Paris during the 1770's and 1780's and though little is recorded of his specific activities we know that he worked as both a horloger and a mercier. Martinet is also referred to as a marchand-bijoutier by Geoffrey de Bellaigue who mentions him in connection with a rare gilt bronze and Meissen porcelain elephant clock signed Gudin on the dial in the Rothschild Collection.
