Seller: moonfaser (249) 100%, Location: Tamworth, Ships to: GB, Item: 322559969710 Magnificent Marble and Ormolu Portico clock purchased from Christies last year . Louis XVI period Circa 1780 by Etienne Richard of Paris .This is an imposing heavy clock at 58cm high . The Marble is in superb condition for its age with extremeley few chips and nibbles and the castings are beautifully crisp and clean . The case has been cleaned but not overcleaned and the dial has had some sympathetic restoration to the winding holes .There is still a slight blemish around 5 , Please note however that the photographwas taken prior to restoration . Movement ,which has been recently fully cleaned and oiled, is early Paris large drum type with going barrells and outside countwheel with silk suspension Keeps excellent time and strikes the hours and halves on a bell ,however presently, although it strikes the hours and halves when it should, they are not always the correct numbers -a little attention therefore is required to the striking side which should be a simple job for a clock enthusiast. I have ,however endeavoured to reflect this in the price . This is not some Napoleon 111 Second Empire Victorian copy - This is the real deal Pre French revolution Arisocrats clock Due to the weight of the clock and the cost of properly packing and sending, this item is COLLECTION ONLY -STRICTLY CASH ON COLLECTION - Any examination a pleasure or give me a ring on 01827 330711 and I will be pleased to answer any queries .I may listen to offers but only those which are sensible and realistic .
