Superb Candelabra Clock Set
~ French - Circa 1890 ~
~~ Excellent condition ~~
A super French Gothic brass clock set by - very decorative - with floral swags, classical motives including a grotesque masks. The front of the clock is of open fretwork of foliage. The dial is enamel and the bezel is cast with the egg and dart border. The clock set is beautifully made in brass - very heavy and crisply modelled.
The candelabra are complete with the candle sconces.
The French movement is of excellent quality and has the better pin pallet escapement and is the unusual movement design with removable spring barrels. The movement runs for 8 days and strikes on a bell.
Condition of the the movement is excellent - we have cleaned and serviced the movement - it runs very well and keeps good time. Pendulum is an old replacement.
Condition of the case and enamel dial is very good - there is some minor discolouration under the enamel at the 4 o'clock and the 8 o'clock. One of the back feet of one of the candelabra has been repaired at some time, we have polished the area around the repair to clean off some disclouration - this is hardly noticeable - see the picture below. There is some minor distortion to the candelabra arms. The delicate blue steal hands are original. The brass is bright and clean with generally a very good finish which is probably original - some very minor dulling and and discolouration here and there as you would expect with any antique item - looks great!.
The clock comes complete with pendulum, key and bell!
