Large Antique French Gothic Clock Set

~ French - Circa 1880 ~

~~ Fully overhauled and working ~~

A very large and well made French clock set with modelling of high quality in brass; beautifully sharp edges and crisp detail. The style is French gothic, formed as a romantic ruin with flowing foliage, and mythical creatures. The front of the clock features a pair of Gothic tracery windows through which the pendulum can be glimpsed swinging inside the case. Candelabra have pieced urns with decorative handles formed with stylised mythical creatures and are surmounted by four branches. The set is complete with its pair of snuffers which sit in the central sconces as finials.  

This is a large heavy and impressive clock set in lovely clean and bright condition.

Dial is enamel on copper with a brass centre and is complete with the original blued steel hands. Hobnail bezel is glazed with convex, bevelled glass. The back door of the clock is glazed with bevelled glass, allowing the movement to be seen.

The French movement is of excellent quality runs for 8 days, striking half-hourly on a bell. We have replaced the missing pendulum with one faithful to the original design. Our clockmaker has fully overhauled the movement, fitted two fresh springs and test run it until satisfied of trouble free running; it is in excellent clean and running condition. The video clip below show the clock running and striking!

Condition of the case is very good with a bright and clean finish, there is some wear and some tarnish in places; the sets displays very well as you can see in the pictures below. The dial is in excellent condition with no chips or scratches. The candelabra arms are very slightly distorted.

Complete with pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.

A large and very decorative clock set!
