Candelabra are conforming in style and have snuffers to match the finial of the clock. The dial is porcelain enamel on copper with a gilt bronze centre and finely cut and blued steel hands. The rear door is glazed to allow the movement to be seen.
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. 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 nibbles next to the winding
holes. One front foot is possibly slightly bent. Candelabra are slightly distorted.
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.
