Empire Ormolu and Marble Portico Clock.

~ French - Circa 1900 ~

~~ Excellent original condition ~~ 

A very chic French ormolu and green marble portico clock by the famous maker Fritz Marti. It is in the Empire style and is constructed of a lovely variegated green marble and is surmounted by an ormolu eagle. The starburst pendulum swings below the movement between the two marble columns.    

The clock looks great from all angles and hence could be placed on a table. The back door is glazed to allow the movement to be seen.

The dial is enamel on copper and is complete with the original delicate brass spade hands.

Movement is of the highest quality and has the Fritz Marti mark on the back plate. Our clockmaker has cleaned and serviced the movement - it is in excellent clean and running condition. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. The pendulum is a replacement faithful to the original. Click the movie below to hear the bell and watch the clock running!

Condition of the case is excellent. Marble has a good polish. There are just a few very light nibbles to the edges and a small chip to the corner to the base of the pillar at the rear of the clock - see picture below. Ormolu has good original gilding with some wear / discolouration in places. The enamel dial has no damage.

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

A great looking clock ready for your home!

Dimensions of clock: Height 16 1/2", Width 10", Depth 4 1/2".
