The large dial is porcelain enamel on copper with blued steel hands and convex glass.
The French movement is of high quality and is by Vincenti. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is an old replacement. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the video 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. There is a slight loss to the case behind the bezel around the eleven o'clock position. The dial is also excellent with just some slight chipping around the brocot shaft above the twelve o'clock. There is no cover over the rear of the movement, however the clock sits against the wall.
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.
