Gold Lacquer and Ormolu Rococo Boudoir Clock .

~ French - Circa 1880 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~ 

A beautiful gold lacquer boudoir clock, finely painted with a romantic scene and floral swags. The lacquer is in the manner of Vernis Martin from the 18th century who developed their lacquer from the Chinese. The lacquer is in remarkably good condition and has developed into a lovely antique gold with a craqueleur.

The clock is a classic Rococo keyhole shape painted with the most exquisite scene to the front of lovers in a country setting. To the sides are painted exotic flowers in the fashion of the 18th century. 

The dial is enamel on copper, cream background with black Roman hours and an Arabic minute ring. This is covered by a thick convex bevelled glass.

The French movement is of the highest quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully serviced by our clockmaker. Pendulum is original.  It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a coiled gong. Click the movie below to hear the gong and watch the clock running!

Condition of the ormolu is excellent with clean and bright finish and no losses. The lacquer has faded and crackled with age and is now a lovely antique gold colour. There is the occasional very slight mark as you would expect but the lacquer is generally excellent with no major repair or damage. The dial has some slight chipping around the winding holes but is otherwise perfect, the original glass has a light scratch. This is a beautiful clock in excellent original condition.

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