P. PLANTARD, Abbeville
Mid-16th century
Tower-shaped table clock
Guillaume Bailly, who commissioned this clock, was born on March 23, 1519 in Paris to a father who was an examiner at the Châtelet of Paris. He died on May 28, 1582 in the abbey of Bourgueil.
He was admitted as a lawyer at the Parliament of Paris in 1538.
He bought a position as a King's counselor and became State Counselor and Honorary Counselor at the Grand Council, then Counselor-Master of Accounts on August 6, 1547. He became president of the Chambre des
Comptes [provided by letters of February 2, 1549].
A high official of the Kingdom of France, he was also Master of the Requests.
In 1555, he was sent to Piedmont by Marshal de Brissac, the same Marshal by whom he was knighted and confirmed in his knighthood by letters-patent of King Charles IX on August 26, 1571.
Decorated with the Order of Saint-Michel, Bailly was lord of La Motte and count of La Ferté-Aleps. He became the 44th abbot of the abbey of Bourgueil in May 1582.
He died as a result of poisoning while dining with the Count of Montsoreau at the castle of La Coutancière, in Brain-sur-Allonnes.
Guillaume Bailly was abbot for twenty-two days.
He died of the consequences of this poisoning in the abbey house and was buried in the choir of the church of the abbey of Bourgueil.
Our clock presents the rare singularity of being the work of a clockmaker whose first name has not been found (P ?), probably belonging to the famous Plantard family in Abbeville, whose most emblematic representative is Nicolas Plantard, supplier of the Queen Mary Stuart.
As a comparison for a table clock signed "Plantard", an example bearing the signature "N. Plantard Abbeville" described as later, circa 1600, was included in The Percy Webster
Collection, Sotheby's, London, 27 May 1954.
No other clock signed "P. Plantard" has been found to date. This clock is a discovery in the history of clockmaking, and prefigures the miniaturization of the first portable watches, and is therefore situated at a turning point in the history of time.
