Very Large French Candelabra Clock Set - Vincenti et Cie
~ French - Circa 1880 ~
~~ Excellent condition ~~
A very large and impressive clock and candelabra set, crisply and heavily modelled in brass. French gothic in style, the case is open fretwork, allowing the pendulum to be seen and is decorated with swags of foliage. The modelling is crisp and heavy The candelabra bases are also open fretwork and the arms are modelled as foliage.
The casting of the clock and candelabra are of the highest quality and the set looks great as you can see in the pictures. This is a large, heavy, high quality clock set.
The dial is enamel on copper with a cast brass centre. The high quality Vincenti movement runs for 8 days and strikes on a bell. It is in excellent, clean and running condition.
Condition of the enamel dial is excellent with no chips, just a few minor light scratches. The original glass has some minor surface scratches. Condition of the case is very good, no losses or damage. The candelabra arms are slightly distorted. The brass has a lovely antique patina - the lacquer has worn in places to leave polished brass and in other places the brass has mellowed to a rich brown.
A stunning display at well over 2 feet in height!
Dimensions of clock: Height 27 1/2", Width 15", Depth 10 1/2".
