The dial is porcelain enamel on copper with delicate floral swags between the numbers and the original finely fretted gilt brass hands.

The French movement is of high quality and has the Samuel Marti mark on the backplate. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a 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. The dial is also in excellent condition just some tiny nibbles to the winding holes. The marble has a good polish and has mellowed to an off-white over time with some staining and discolouration. There is an occasional small nibble to the edges particularly to the rear. 


Samuel Marti 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.
