A lovely little clock, rare in this small size, could be placed on a desk or small table. The delicate dial is porcelain enamel on copper with finely cut and blued steel hands.
The French movement is by Vincenti and is of excellent quality. It is the small version of the Pendule de Paris movement with pin-pallet escapement and rack striking. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled and tested. Pendulum is original. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the video below to hear the bell and watch the clock running.
Condition of the case is excellent, the gilding is beautifully clean and bright with hardly any wear or discolouration. Marble is in excellent condition, some discolouration and some tiny nibbles to the edges. The dial is also in excellent condition with no damage.
Complete with original 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.
