Antique French Candelabra
Clock Set - S Marti et Cie

~ French - Circa 1890 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~ 

A very decorative clock set complete with a suite of original bases. French gothic in style, the case is open fretwork, allowing the pendulum to be seen and is decorated with swags of foliage. The candelabra bases are also open fretwork and the arms are modelled as entangled foliage. They are complete with the original pair of snuffers. The finish of the brass is clean but not over bright.  

The dial is enamel on copper with original blued steel hands - it has red enamelled half hour markers and a cast brass centre. The high quality S Marti et Cie movement runs for 8 days and strikes on a bell. It is in excellent, clean and running condition. Clock is complete with original pendulum, bell and key.

The retailers mark is on the underside of the bases and on the movement back plate, along with the S Marti et Cie makers mark.

The finish of the brass is very good - bright and clean. There are some areas of wear or discoloration. Condition of the enamel dial is very good - just a few a light hairline through the 12 o'clock. Condition of the case is very good, no losses or damage except for an old repair to the legs of one candelabra. The candelabra stands correctly although the side legs are slightly distorted and the rear leg has an old repair. The candelabra arms are slightly distorted. We have recovered the bases with velvet and replaced the fabric trim.

Dimensions of clock: Height 20 1/2", Width 11 1/2", Depth 5 1/2".

Dimensions of candelabra: Height 23", Width 7 1/2", Depth 5 1/4".

A very decorative clock set!
