Superb Gilt Brass Gothic Clock

~ Antique French - Circa 1870 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~ 

A small and very pretty clock of gilt brass in stunning condition. It has a gothic theme with the clock modelled as a architectural ruin with flying buttresses forming the feet, a coat of arms to the front and pointed tracery windows to the front and sides. The pendulum can be glimpsed swinging within the case through the front windows. The modelling is fine and sharp and the original gilding is in lovely clean and bright condition with very little wear - this is a very good quality clock.   

The dial is superb and is gilded brass modelled in the shape of a rose window. The dial is mounted with 12 individual enamel cartouche letters and fitted with the original brass hands.        

Antique French movement runs for 8 days on one wind and strikes half-hourly on a bell. It has been fully restored in our workshop and is on excellent clean and running condition. The pendulum is a original. Click the video clip below to see and hear the movement working!

Condition of the case is excellent with a bright and clean original gilding, there is some slight wear and discolouration. The dial is also in excellent condition with just some very small nibbles to the edges of the cartouches.

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

Dimensions of clock:

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. We then clean the cases using a technique we have developed over many years. We employee two qualified clockmakers who overhaul the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they will run trouble free.
