Stunning Gilt Brass Clock with Lions Rampant - Samuel Marti.
~ French - Circa 1880 ~
~~ Excellent condition ~~
A Very decorative gilt brass clock featuring a pair of Lions Rampant. To the sides are depictions of goddess Nike and beneath the dial is a goddess mask. Clock is beautifully modelled and the gilding in very good clean and bright condition.
Back door is glazed to allow the movement to be seen.
The dial is enamel on copper with a finely fretted brass centre and is complete with original blued steel hands.
The French movement is by Samuel Marti and is signed on the movement backplate. It is of the highest quality and 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 movie below to hear the bell and watch the clock running!
Condition of the case is
excellent with clean and bright finish and there are no losses. There is some
very minor wear to the original gilding on the high spots. There is some
scratching to the original bevelled glass. The dial has some slight hair-lining
to the edge at the seven o'clock position.
Click the movie player below to hear and see the clock run - large file, may take a moment to start.
Samuel Marti mark on the movement backplate.
