Antique French Gilt Clock Set -
Large and Magnificent.

~ French - Circa 1890 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~

This is a large and majestic clock set with the most stunning original gilding. Standing at over 26" in height, this clock set will make a great focal point for any grand room. 

The style is gothic, featuring mermaids to the sides of the clock and the candelabra. There are also winged mythical creatures. The clock and the candelabra are architecturally designed - heavily and finely modelled in gilt brass.

The large dial is designed in the manner of 18th century examples. Each dial letter is an individual cartouche, enamelled on copper and pinned to a heavy cast back plate. The centre of the dial is ebonised wood with a gilt brass swag decoration applied to it. It is complete with the original silver steel hands. The bezel is heavy hobnailed and is fitted with convex glass.

The clock has a fretted back to allow the pendulum to be seen and the candelabra are modelled in the round - the clock set would look great from both sides for example in the middle of a room as well as against a wall.

The French movement is signed on the rear Popon Paris, it is of excellent quality and runs for 8 days and strikes on a bell. It is in excellent, clean and running condition having been completely overhauled in our workshop. It is complete with an old replacement pendulum and bell. Click the movie below to hear the bell!

Condition of the clock and candelabra is excellent, there are no losses and the enamel cartouches are perfect.

Have a look at the pictures below - this clock set is stunning!
