The French movement is of high quality and is by Fritz Marti. It is a traditional and high quality 'Pendule de Paris' movement. 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.
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
and some minor marks.
There is a light crack at the front to the base which we have reinforced. The
lioness has some wear to the original finish on the high spots. The dial is excellent
with some light marks and wear to the lettering. There is some slight wear to
the chrome plated bezel.

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.
