Huge and Magnificent Gothic Wall Clock  

~ French - Circa 1880 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~ 

A Stunning Gothic wall clock, of architectural proportions at over 3 ft in height and constructed very heavily from solid gilded brass. It was found by one of our buyers in Germany at a 19th century castle being developed. It is formed of a large wall bracket, boldly cast as gothic tracery. The clock hangs from a heavy curved bracket with a mythical creature. The clock itself is housed in a large case, fretted to the four sides of the base and surmounted by a lancet shaped top. Below the case is an urn decorated with 2 stylised mythical creatures.

This is a grand clock on a huge scale, it is difficult to sense the scale and weight of this clock from the pictures, it will require a substantial bolt, screw or hook to hang from!      

The dial is deeply recessed in a large gilt brass bezel which is almost 8 inches in diameter. It is gilded brass mounted with 4 enamel on copper cartouches. It is complete with the original blued steel hands and is enclosed by convex glass.

The French movement is of superb quality, runs for 8 days and strikes half-hourly on a bell. It is in excellent, clean and running condition having been fully cleaned and overhauled by our clockmaker who has replaced the missing pendulum with an old spare. Click the movement below to see and hear the movement!

Condition of the case is excellent - there are no losses and the finish of the gilding is bright and clean with some minor areas of tarnish / discolouration and light surface scratches. The dial is also in excellent condition with just a faint hairline at the 12 o'clock position.

A stunning Gothic centrepiece ready for your home or castle!
