Antique French Gilt Brass Clock Set ~ French - Circa 1870 ~ ~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~ A very decorative and unusual antique French clock set, Chinese in influence. The clock case is deigned to represent a moon flask with lotus petal decoration around the edge and lotus decoration to the body as blind fret work. To the top is a finial of mythical creatures. Candelabra are similarly styled with three lights on elaborately scrolling arms. The set is modelled in the round so could be displayed on a table but is also quite shallow in depth at only 5" and would therefore suit a narrow mantle shelve. The dial is designed as part of the case, it is deeply moulded in gilt brass and is fitted with 12 individual enamel cartouche letters. It isn't deigned to have a glass bezel. 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 bell. Click the video clip below 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 and there are no losses. The dial is also in excellent condition, no damage to the cartouches. Candelabra are slightly distorted and one arm has an old repair which is strong and not noticeable. The set makes a stunning display as you can see below. *Listed in AUD, USD, UKP, please see our store for your preferred currency* Complete with pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.
