Antique French Ormolu Neoclassical Drum Head Clock.

~ French - Circa 1880 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~ 

A very decorative drum head neoclassical clock. It is beautifully made of ormolu (gilded brass/bronze) and finely finished. The movement is mounted in a drum on top of a reeded column. Scroll supports are to the sides and a laurel swag is draped below the dial. Above the dial is a delicate bow and an urn with pineapple finial.    

The dial is also ormolu and is mounted with 12 individual enamel cartouche letters. Lettering is the more desirable blue on white. A further cartouche just below the 12 o'clock is signed for the retailer Lambert-Levy. The rear door is glazed to allow the movement to be seen.

The French movement is of high quality and has the clockmakers mark H&F Paris on the backplate. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a replacement. It runs for 8 days on one wind and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the video clip below to hear the bell and watch the clock running!

Condition of the case is excellent with clean and bright finish. There is some wear to the original gilding. The dial is also very good with no chips or scratches.

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

Dimensions of clock:

inches Height 16 1/2", Width 11 1/4", Depth 5 1/2"
  centimetres Height 42 cm, Width 28.5 cm, Depth 14 cm

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.
