Stunning Antique French Rococo Clock Set

~ French - Circa 1880 ~

~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~

A very decorative original antique French clock set. It is beautifully modelled in the Rococo style in gilt brass. The elaborate asymmetric case is typical of the Rococo style from the reign of Louis XV and features flowing scrolls of foliage and floral swags, a large finial to the top and acanthus leaves applied to the shoulders. The front is delicately fretted to lighten the design and allow a glimpse of the pendulum gently swinging inside the case. Candelabra have four delicate branches sitting upon urns.

The beautiful enamel dial is a delicate shade of cream, lettered with a separate minute ring and complete with delicately fretted gilt brass hands. It is covered by original convex glass mounted in a Rococo bezel.

The French movement is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is an old replacement. 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, the original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with hardly any wear or discolouration and there are no losses. The dial is also in excellent condition with no damage. There are a couple of very small flaws in the original glass. Candelabra are slightly distorted. The set makes a stunning display as you can see below. 


Paris retailers mark on the movement backplate.

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

About us - All of our clocks are original antiques, we source most of our clocks in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK. We prefer to buy our clocks in original 'dirty' condition. We then clean the cases using a technique we have developed over many years. We employ two qualified clockmakers who overhaul the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they will run trouble free.
