The very chic dial is enamel on copper, delicately lettered with a separate minute ring and covered with convex glass.

The French movement is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Ormolu pendulum is original. 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 marble is also in good condition with a good polish. There are some occasional tiny nibbles to the edges. One urn has some hairlining along the grain of the stone. The cover of the other urn has a small chip that is hidden by the handle. The rear left hand column on the clock has a small chip top and bottom that are hardly noticeable. The dial is in excellent condition with just some faint hairlining.

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.
