Large Brass Cased Table Clock
by Fritz Marti.

~ French - Circa 1900 ~

~~ Excellent condition, full overhauled and working ~~ 

A very impressive and substantial antique French table clock, modelled in gilded brass in the classical style. It features a beautiful large enamel dial with brass centre and fine blued steel hands. To the sides are red velvet backed sound frets, finely detailed, to enable the sonorous gong strike to be fully appreciated. The caddy top is draped with blind fretted swags.

The French movement by Fritz Marti and has the makers 'Medaille D'Or, Paris 1900' mark on the movement backplate. It is of excellent quality and is the large plate version of the Pendule de Paris movement and has the superior rack striking and pin-pallet escapement. We have dismantled the movement, fully cleaned and overhauled it, fitted two new springs and made a new pendulum. We then tested it thoroughly until satisfied that it runs perfectly. It runs for 8 days on one wind and strikes the hours and half-hours on a sonorous coiled gong. You can watch the clock running in the video clip below.    

Condition of the case is excellent with clean and bright finish. There is some minor wear to the gilding and very light surface marks/scratches. The dial has some slight chipping around the winding holes and some hairlines / cracking at the 2 and 10 o'clock positions. The original glass has some nibbles at the edges and the fretwork on the top of the case has some old repair work. We have replaced the old red velvet with new (we can change the colour of the velvet to suit your decor if you wish).

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