Antique Onyx Clock Garniture. Samuel Marti Working Order

£650.00 or Best Offer 27d, £15.00 Shipping, 14-Day Returns

Seller: makada56 (2,063) 100%, Location: Dundee, Ships to: GB, Item: 171887442326 Green Onyx clock garniture with bronze spelter figurines. Clock movement is by prolific French maker Samuel Marti. The movement has the Medaille D'Argent stamp from 1889. This was an award given to the maker for the quality of his clock movements. The clock will have been made at about this date. The entire movement has been stripped down cleaned and oiled. It is an 8 day movement and has been fully tested. The chime is single strike every half hour. The original key will also be supplied. The clock is well over 100 years old and thus any buyer should be aware that it will need regular maintenance and clearly could stop working at any time. There is a no quibble 14 day return on this clock but I cannot offer a warranty beyond this. The clock case is green onyx and has been signed by its maker. Please see photograph. There is a traditional Roman scene depicting gladiators chariots and horses above the clock face in Gold inlay. The blue enamelled pillars either side of the face have gold inlay flowers. The patina of the case and dial have been left in place, it will be the choice of the new owner whether or not to clean it off. The clock is 14 inches wide, 14 inches tall and 4.5'inches deep approximately. There is a hairline in the dial between 5&6 and a very small hairline beside the 9. There is very little in terms of wear to the case or the figurines. The onyx is in good condition and whilst there may be some very minor marks, chips, there is no damage cracks or anything of significance to mention. The spelter figurines are just short of 20 inches tall. The patina has been left in place but could be cleaned by the new owner if preferred. This is a unique garniture and would be a focal point of quite some substance in the correct setting. For shipping this item will be heavily protected and will be sent in separate packages. The delivery will be tracked and insured. If possible then local pick up would be preferred. If you are considering purchasing this item then I would advise you asking all relevant questions before hand. I will take a no quibble return but postage costs are clearly high for such a substantial item and there is a risk of damage each time it is in transit. This type of clock will need set up in its new location. To keep good time the clock movement may need slight adjustment as might the pendulum. Whilst this is not complicated, any buyer needs to be aware of this, particularly if they are unfamiliar with Antique clocks.
