The bold arched top above the dial is also fretted and to the top is an urn. The six light candelabra are similarly modelled and have arms modelled as scrolling foliage. Snuffers fit in the middle sconces as finials when not in use.

The dial is also gilded brass and is mounted with 12 individual enamel cartouches for the hours. These are blue enamel on a white background. There is also a vacant cartouche for the retailers signature.

The French movement is of high quality and has the clockmakers mark L.S. Boname, Selencourt on the movement backplate. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully serviced by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a replacement. 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 with clean and bright finish. There is some very minor wear and discolouration, particularly to some of the nozzle inserts. There is a slightly original casting fault above the dial. One nozzle insert has some minor loss to the edge and one drip tray is a slightly different design. The dial is in excellent condition with no chips or scratches. The glass has a very light scratch. 

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 employee two qualified clockmakers who overhaul the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they will run trouble free.
