Large Antique French Gilt Brass Table Clock.

~ French - Circa 1870 ~

~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~ 

A very finely detailed gilt brass clock in excellent condition, much of the original gilding remains which is in lovely bright and clean condition. The style is classical Louis XVI, boldly and heavily modelled with crisp, fine detail. The large gilt brass dial is mounted with 12 individual enamel cartouches. It sits between two columns with a fretted panel beneath allowing the pendulum to be seen swinging within the case. Above the dial is an arched pediment surmounted by an urn. A pair of winged goddess sit upon the cushion base, a grotesque mask is mounted above the dial and to the sides are stylised handles with lions masks. This is clock of high quality in lovely condition.   

The French movement is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a replacement.  The movement backplate has the retailers mark 'H & F of Paris'. It runs for 8 days 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 with clean and bright finish and there are no losses. There is some very minor wear to the original gilding. The dial is also in excellent condition with no chips or scratches.

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