A lovely original antique French Rococo boudoir clock. Modelled in gilt brass and typically bold, asymmetric, waisted designed with laurel leaves, 'C' scrolls and floral swags. There is a large and elaborate scrolling finial to the top of the case. The dial is the sought after cream enamel on copper with blue lettering and finely fretted gilt brass hands. It has a separate minute ring and has a Rococo acanthus bezel. The front of the case is fretted to allow a glimpse of the pendulum swinging within the case.

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 on one wind 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 and there are no losses. There is some
minor wear on the high spots. The dial is also in excellent condition with no
chips or scratches. The original glass has some scratching.
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.
