£2,500.00 or Best Offer 12d, FREE Shipping, 14-Day Returns

Seller: elfkincatcher (1,334) 100%, Location: Sunny Southsea, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 222322218579 This is a unique beauty - the ideal clock for a musician - a gilt ormolu Philippe Mourey case with a Japy Freres movement with bell striking on the hour and half hour. It has just had a complete service and clean and is working perfectly keeping excellent time. It has new springs and the pendulum is a replacement. The case is dated (18)62. The clock has a troubadour sat atop...playing his mandolin with a violin resting against the plinth. He is a handsome moustached minstrel looking rather like Robin Hood with his flowing cape, feathered plume and fancy breeches. His delicate fingers are all intact. The clock has a Sevres dial...the retailers name has sadly rubbed off but it was a Paris clocksmith. The dial is delightful...hand painted blue bordered Sevres dial with Roman numerals...just one minor chip to one winding hole. The 3 Sevres plaques are all perfect. The decoration is floral and hand painted. The back leg has a piece added to it to balance it. The only flaw is the loss of one swag on the right hand side. You can forgive this because it is such a fabulous beauty of a clock. You will probably never see another...and certainly not in this condition. In common with Mourey cases, there is no glass to the dial or cover to the back. The clock is 15" tall X 15" wide X 5" deep. This exceptional clock can either be collected from me - very strictly cash only or delivered via Mailboxes Etc who will pack it and send it tracked... This is not something I would attempt! If you need a quotation please ask...or enquire at MBE Portsmouth. I will deliver at petrol/ mileage (to be agreed) within a reasonable distance to Southsea ...again CASH ONLY for this service. Cash on collection or personal delivery - Pay Pal for specialist packing and courier service. Condition: This is a beautiful ormolu clock in recent restored and cleaned condition. Perfect for a musician! It has one swag missing and the back foot has been levelled but it is gorgeous. It keeps perfect time (as any wind up clock can be). It has had a replacement pendulum and comes with key and regulator. Collection or delivery is preferred but only if cash is paid.
