Superb Antique French Table Clock Set by
A. D. Mougin.

~ French - Circa 1890 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~

A large, stunning and very good quality gilt brass clock set. It is classical in style, modelled as a Greek temple. It has a lotus flower cornice above 2 columns with acanthus capitals. The columns are decorated with floral swags and masks. The 'roof' is surmounted by a Greek Sphinx, with the head and breasts of a woman, body of a dog, tail of a serpent, wings of a bird, paws of a lion. Two mythical creatures circle her pedestal, possibly symbolising containment of the sphinx.

The front and sides of the clock are fretted with acanthus leaves, floral swags and masks, this allows the pendulum to be seen swinging from either the side or the front. The back door is glazed which allows the movement to be seen. Also, both the clock and candelabra are modelled in the round. The set will therefore would display very well on a table in the centre of a room as well as to the side of your room.

Dial is enamel and copper, delicately decorated with floral and complete with the original fretted gilt brass hands. Above the dial are two mythical creatures and below is a winged angel.

Candelabra are large and intricately designed with acanthus leaves and mythical creatures. There are 5 branches giving 6 lights altogether.        

French movement is by A. D. Mougin, an excellent French maker. It runs for 8 days and strikes half-hourly on a bell. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker who has replaced the missing pendulum. Click the movie below to see and hear the movement working!

Condition of the case is excellent with a bright and clean finish. There is some wear to the original gilding. Dial is also in excellent condition with no defects. The candelabra arms are very slightly distorted and one retaining nut has been replaced. The set looks great as you can see in the pictures below! 

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

A stunning large clock set, an ideal centrepiece for you room!
