Seller: clockbroker (110) 100%, Location: Mansfield, Ships to: GB, Item: 122213493572 RARE FRENCH MOONPHASE MANTEL CLOCK - Small size Having owned and seen several French clocks with moon dials I have not come across one of this design and small size . They are usually of excellent quality but tend to be on the large size and very heavy. This clock is one of the smallest I have seen and would be very easy to house in any location. Due the premium in price such clocks demand unfortunately these movements are often mounted in non original cases but this example is totally genuine right down to the original pendulum and key. There is a quote from Galileo Galilei (1564-1842) inscribed on the front in French script which translated means pure is "poor and yet it moves" regarding the inquisition he was involved in concerning the relationship of the Earth to the Sun - this is obviously the correct case for the movement!. The french made square plated 8 day duration movement strikes the hours and half hours on a bell.It is in full working order having been serviced prior to sale.It bears the trademark of Edouard Serin of Paris who is a known maker of such clocks . Other makers did not normally incorporate moon phase/calendar work on their main clock dials and used a separate dial and movement The perfect porcelain dial shows the moon phase as well as conventional time. The black Belgium slate case is in very nice original order and apart from the chip in the front in the centre of the pediment it is in excellent condition save a small stain (illustrated )on the top which no doubt can be removed by someone who knows how. I have simply cleaned,oiled and waxed the case and it has a lovely shine. Prospective buyers are very welcome and encouraged to view this item to see how nice it is in real life. It is 16 1/2 inches tall, 11 1/2 wide and 7 1/2 inches deep Like all antiques there are the odd related marks but nothing else worth mentioning .This is a genuine and original clock and I offer a full money back guarantee to this end.
