Seller: timerunner56 (723) 99.2%, Location: Bournemouth, Dorset, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 291948800280 Details: Nice French Inlaid Portico Mantle ClockA nice French Portico mantle clock. The case is delightfully inlaid and its count wheel striking movement is by 'Japy Frere'. The movement isn't working but is ticking a little and striking when the hands are manually rotated. The enamel dial is damaged while the hands are not a pair but the bezel is beautifully cast with a shell like decoration. The pendulum is equally well cast while the bell rings well.The case is very nicely constructed, inlaid with satinwood. It also has four very nicely shaped pillars with exquisitely cast brass caps and bases. The wood does have some historical worm holes and there is some veneer loss towards the base/sides and lifting to top (please see all photos). A beautiful Victorian clock that is sold as seen for parts/restoration. A very nice project.Postal costs refer to UK mainland addressesHappy to answer any questions, either via message or phone ( 07761 432112 ) Terms and ConditionsAll my items are sold for restoration and consequently sold as seen without a guarantee.
