The large dial is porcelain enamel on copper with Blue lettering and a separate minute ring. It is complete with original finely fretted gilt brass hands and convex glass. The rear door is glazed to allow the movement to be seen.
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 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 in excellent
condition with some slight hairlining between the 10 and 11 o'clock. The
original glass has some slight mark. Both candelabra have an old repair to the
base of the tapered column.
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.
