Gilt Brass Cartel Wall Clock
~ French - Circa 1890 ~
~~ Excellent condition ~~
A large and stunning antique French cartel wall clock. It is beautifully modelled in gilt brass and is in the Baroque style. It features a grotesque mask, lions to the shoulders above the dial and a pair of winged goddesses below the dial.
The dial is enamel on copper with a cast brass centre and is complete with original large, blued steel hands.
The French movement is of very high quality and has the Vincenti et Cie clockmakers mark on the movement backplate. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully serviced by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a replacement. It runs for 8 days 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 to the original gilding and there are no losses. The
dial is also in excellent condition with just a faint hairline next to the right
hand winding hole and some slight nibbles around both winding holes.
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.
