The movement is clean with 2 jewels for accuracy. The clockworks are made from brass. The glass crystal has no scratched. The brass bezel and back show normal age. There is no damage to the wood case - two lines in the wood (see pics) appear to be original rahther than damage. There is a little fading, but nothing that disparages the beauty of this clock. A Little about Duverdrey & Bloquel: In 1867, Albert Villon established his clockmaking shop in Saint Nicholas and began creating small 'domestic' alarm and mantle clocks, utilizing Japy Frères' famous enamel dials. Villon identified his clocks by includiing his initials A.V. on the back and added his logo, the "lion passant" or walking lion which became the trademark for over eighty years.. In 1896, Albert Villon assoociated himself with Paul Duverdrey and Joseph Bloquel and the three of them created the company known as Albert Villon, Duverdrey et Bloquel which operated under that name until Villon's death in 1902. It was then rebaptized Duverdrey & Bloquel and in 1928, the brand name Bayard was retained. Bayard was chosen in reference to a character of French history known as the Chevalier de Bayard, who was without fear and without reproach. From 1928 to about 1932, many of the clocks produced were stamped with both names - Duverdrey & Bloquel - Bayard mostly on the clock mechanism and finally only Bayard was kept along with the logo of the walking lion. Interestingly, people still confuse the Bayard lion with the car manufacturer Peugeot's lion even though the two of them are dramatically different in design.
