An acanthus scroll sits on the top of the clock and a bold 'C' scroll beneath the dial with a ribbon and bow. Behind the 'C' scroll, the pendulum can be seen swinging gently. This is very well made clock with sharp detail and a bright finish.

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 employ two qualified clockmakers who overhaul the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they will run trouble free.
