The dial porcelain enamel on copper with finely fretted gilt brass hands. The rear door is also glazed to allow the movement to be seen and the clock is decorated in the round allowing you to display on a table or in front of a mirror. The bottom of the pendulum can be glimpsed gently swinging within the case.
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 an old replacement. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the video 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 very good, a very small nibble to the left hand winding hole. We have replaced the fabric with fresh.

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.
