The clock has a porcelain dial featuring a cherub with a basket of flowers and beneath this is a delicately painted scene of a young couple. To the top of the clock is a porcelain urn delicately painted with a country scene. The rear door is also glazed to allow the movement to be seen.

The French movement is by Achille Brocot and has the makers mark on the backplate. The retailers mark is on the dial. It is of high quality as expected and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is original. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the video clip below to hear the bell and watch the clock running!

Achille Brocot was a member of the renowned Brocot clockmaking family, the eldest son of Louis Gabriel Brocot. He was treasurer to La Société des Horlogers in Paris and was awarded First Class Medal at the 1855 Paris Exhibition -  Tardy, Dictionnaire des Horlogers

Condition of the case is excellent, the original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with hardly any wear or discolouration and there are no losses. Porcelain is in very good condition with just some rubbing to the over-glaze gilt decoration, especially to the dial.

About us - All of our clocks are original antiques, we source most of our clocks in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK. We prefer to buy our clocks in original 'dirty' condition. We then clean the cases using a technique we have developed over many years. We employ two qualified clockmakers who overhaul the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they will run trouble free.
