The dial is porcelain enamel on copper with a pieced gilt bronze rose to the centre and its original blued steel hands.
The French movement is of high quality and is by A D Mougin. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a replacement. 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!
Condition of the case is excellent, the original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with hardly any wear or discolouration. The dial is also in excellent condition just some nibbles to the winding holes.
Compagnie Des Bronzes (1854-1979)
The world renown Cie des Bronze was based in Molenbeek Saint-Jean in Brussels and produced a wide variety of high quality bronze art from sculptures, interior fittings, clocks and candelabra to monumental bronze around the world. The foundry is now a museum.
Complete with pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.
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.
