Antique French Marble and Ormolu Portico Clock

~ French - Circa 1890 ~

~~ Excellent original condition ~~ 

A beautiful French portico clock, constructed of a superb variegated specimen marble and mounted with ormolu. The serpentine shaped base has two ormolu birds and the clock is surmounted by a bow and quiver of arrows also in ormolu.   

The dial is enamel on copper, it is delicately decorated with floral swags and is signed by the retailer and is complete with the original fretted gilt hands. 

The French movement is of excellent quality, runs for 8 days, strikes on a bell and is in excellent, clean and running condition -  it is complete with the original double sided pendulum and bell. Click the movie below to hear and see the clock running and striking.

Condition of the case is excellent - there is a very small chip to the right hand side of the base. The gilding is original, bright and clean. The enamel dial is perfect.

A very decorative and good quality clock.

Dimensions of clock: Height 15", Width 8 1/4", Depth 5 1/2".
