Seller: clockbroker (113) 100%, Location: Mansfield, Ships to: GB, Item: 122224342344 SMALL PINK MARBLE FRENCH MANTLE CLOCK - Very pretty item It is a pleasure to offer this very small and pretty mantle clock of French manufacture dating from the last quarter of the nineteenth Century. It is uncommon to find pink marble used as the case material for antiques clocks and the marble used in this particular example if of the very finest quality with striking veining and colour which is enhanced by quality ormlou mounts and a beautiful porcelain dial which is in perfect condition. The small size is also ideal for modern tastes being only 12 1/2 inches tall to the very top of the finial ,7 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches deep making it suitable to be placed anywhere. The 3 inch dial is very pretty and in perfect condition whilst retaining a beautiful pair of chased and gilded hands. The 8 day movement is of top quality manufacture and strikes the hours and half hours on a bell (removed for the photograph.It has the benefit of fine time adjustment from the front of the dial.It also bears the makers mark of A D Mougin of Paris who was working circa 1880 and serial number.The movement functions perfectly but is a little dirty and would benefit from a service. This clock is genuine and original The overall condition is excellent as can be seen from the images but like all antiques there are the odd age related marks and tiny chips but nothing specific worth mentioning and I am sure that the condition will delight the most discerning customer.
