The dial is porcelain enamel on copper with blue lettering and beautifully fretted gilt brass hands and convex glass. It is signed for the retailer / maker Hatton of Paris. The rear door is also glazed with convex glass to allow the movement to be seen. Unusually the case is also marked with the movement serial number along with the pendulum.
The French movement is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. 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 some occasional discolouration and some slight wear mainly to the rear of the case where the gilding was originally not as thickly applied. The porcelain is in excellent condition. 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.
