The front and sides have sound frets backed with red velvet. To the top is a bold Rococo foliate finial and the clock sits on an integral base. The dial is porcelain enamel on copper with its original finely fretted brass hands.
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 sonorous gong. Click the video below to hear the gong 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 very good
condition, just three small chips at the 5, 25 and 45 minute positions.
Complete with pendulum 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.
