Seller: 0ldmare (646) 100%, Location: Maidstone, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 142185350539 This is a superb Antique French Portico Clock with marquetry inlay The movement has been recently serviced and is in good working order running a full week between winds. It sounds the half hour and then counts the hours on the hour, all on a silvered bell with good tone. The movement is impressive, it is larger and more substantial than a normal French clock movement. It has DURU a Paris stamped on the back The case is primarily rosewood with (I think) satinwood inlay. The marquetry inlay extends to the front pillars, and to a lesser extent the rear pillars What makes this clock particularly unusual is the silver pillar caps (assume silver plated, but am not sure). They really set this clock apart. I have cleaned and lacquered them and so they should stay nice and shiny! One rear pillar cap has a split in it, but otherwise all in good order The pendulum has a boy or cherub leading a lion and is highly ornate as you can see from the pictures The silvered and engraved dial is a replacement, but I believe is in keeping with the clock. It is as near to being immaculate as you'll ever find The clock measures: 19.5 inches tall x 10.25 inches wide x 5.5 inches deep All in all a beautiful and quite unusual clock in good working order so bid with confidence you will not be disappointed! The courier charge is for UK excluding Highlands & Islands, the cost to these would be £16.00. Sorry but that is what it would cost me. Happy also for the buyer to collect, I'm based half way between Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone in Kent Condition: The movement is in excellent condition having been recently serviced. Case has the usual knocks, but is overall extremely smart. One rear pillar cap has a split in it. The engraved and silvered dial is a replacement, but in keeping with the clock, Age: Antique, Pre-1900, Sub-Type: Mantel Clock, Material: Rosewood, Type: Mantel/ Carriage Clock, Features: 8-Day, Style/ Origin/ Theme: French
