Antique French Onyx and Gilt Candelabra Four Glass Clock Set

Circa 1880

~ Clockmaker - A D Mougin ~

~~ Excellent Condition  ~~ 

A Superb four glass library or crystal regulator, with beautifully figured and shaped onyx, gilt brass mounts and the original mercury compensated pendulum. The clock is unusual in having a pair of matching candelabra, complete with flaming finial snuffers and sconces. 

The dial is enamel on copper and is decorated with delicate floral swags. The movement is by A D Mougin and is of good quality. It runs for 8 days and strikes half - hourly on a bell.

Condition of the case is excellent. The bevelled glass has no chips or cracks. The onyx is beautifully variegated - there is a slightly milky patch on the top which I think is naturally part of the stone, also a small piece missing 1/4" on the side of one of the candelabra bases in the middle looks like a natural fault in the stone. There is a tiny chip on the front of the base of the clock (very tiny). The onyx has an excellent polished finish, the gilt is slightly rubbed and dull in a few places, so does look antique. The dial as a small area of restoration at the 6 o'clock - see picture below. The movement is in excellent clean and fully running condition.

Dimensions of clock: Height 19 1/2", Width 12", Depth 7".
Dimensions of each candelabra: Height 19", Width 6 1/2", Depth 6".

A stunning clock set for any elegant home!

Complete with key, original mercury pendulum and bell!
