Seller: timerunner56 (839) 100%, Location: Bournemouth, Dorset, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 292192234213 Quality French Empire Silk Suspension Mantle ClockA lovely quality French Empire clock with silk suspension. This beautifully cast clock has a nice detailed lady figure in period dress playing what looks like a mandolin? Next to her is a music stand with sheet music on it. The case is also covered with garlands of flowers which are all nicely produced. The Base of the music stand looks a slightly different colour, could be replaced or just rubbed? The numerals are also rubbed but the case should clean up well. The bezel also has flowers decorating it while at the top there is a rose. The centre of the dial is engine turned and of some quality. The timepiece movement is French and very fine but not named.The spring is good and fully wound and clock ticks away for a bit but considered not running. It does require a clean and service. A nice early piece that is offered for restoration only and should prove a very nice project for the experienced restorer. Measures 14.5in tall x 9.75in wide x 3.75in deep. A delightful clock that is offered as seen for restoration.Happy 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.
