Marble and Gilt Cherub Clock Set
by Vincenti et Cie.

~ French - Circa 1880 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~ 

A chic and decorative clock set of Italian Bardiglio
variegated grey marble mounted with gilded metal. Two cherubim struggle to hold the clock aloft which is fitted in a marble case which is surmounted by a finial of a quiver of arrows and a bow. Pendulum is a sun goddess and can be seen swinging beneath the case. The side urns have gilt covers with pineapple finials and cherub handles joined with floral swags. Modelling of the mounts is excellent with a good original gild and these are offset by the beautifully understated marble.

The dial is enamel on copper with floral swags between the Arabic numerals. It is complete with the original gilded fretted brass hands.

The Vincenti French movement is of the highest quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully serviced by our clockmaker. The backplate is fully marked with clockmakers mark and Paris retailers mark. Pendulum is original.  It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the movie below to hear the bell and watch the clock running!

Condition of the case is excellent with clean and bright finish to the gilt metal. There is some very minor wear to the original gilding on the high spots. Marble has a lovely finish with just a few very minor light surface marks and tiny nibbles to the edges. The dial is also in excellent condition with just a tiny hairline above the 12 o'clock. The set displays very well indeed, see the pictures below!

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