The dial is porcelain and is painted with a cherub above the clouds with a basket of flowers, allegorical of love. It is complete with its original finely cut brass hands. The bezel is fitted with convex glass.
The French movement is of high quality and is by Japy Frères. 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 sonorous coiled gong. Click the video below to hear the gong 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. Porcelain is in very good condition with rubbing to the over-glaze gilt decoration, particularly to the dial.

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.
