The dial is also gilt bronze with 12 individual enamel cartouches and finely cut blued steel hands. The bezel is fitted with convex glass. The rear door is also glazed to allow the movement to be seen running, for example if the clock were to be placed in front of a mirror.
The French movement is of high quality 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 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. Dial is also good with just some slightly chipping next
to the winding holes.
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.
