The French movement is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is original. It runs for 8 days on one wind 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, the original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with just some slight wear or discolouration. The dial is also in very good condition just some tiny nibbles to the cartouches and some fading and slight scratching. The back cover is missing from the clock, however the clock sits tight against the wall when hung in position  so this is of little consequence. This is a stunning original clock ready for your collection.

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

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.
