The dial is of high quality with a heavy gilded bezel with beveled glass enclosing a matted gold dial with Art Deco lettering and blued steel hands.
The French movement is a traditional 'Pendule de Paris' movement with a pendulum and is of high quality. It is by the Parisian maker Silvin and 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 below to hear the bell and watch the clock running.
Condition of the case is excellent, the marble has a lovely polish, there are some minor nibbles to the marble mostly along the bottom edges and corners. The is a small patch of lost polish to the top of one side piece. The dial is excellent with some re-touching to the lettering and some light marks, mostly between the '7' and '8'. Elephants are also very good with just some light wear to the original finish.
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.
