The superb and large dial is porcelain enamel on copper with beautifully made pieced, engraved and gilded hands.
The French movement is by Samuel Marti and is of high quality. It is fitted in pin-pallet escapement and rack striking. It 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.
Condition of the case is excellent, the original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with some slight wear on the high spots and discolouration. The dial is also in excellent condition with no damage, just a faint hairline near the '12'. We have replaced the fabric with fresh.
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.
