Antique Rococo Style Clock Fancy Porcelain Face Bronze Case Beautiful Detailing w/ Appropriate Pendulum Runs and Strikes. Would make a great gift or keep for yourself!
Beautiful mantel clock that was made in France. Nice petite sized case here. Most clocks of this style are 18" to 20" tall. This case is just under 15. The clock case has a beautiful classical look to it.
The clock dates to the late 1800s to early 1900s. The clock has a beautiful brass French movement and then a bronze clock case.The case is adorned with all sort of images, such as the musical instruments above the face. Some minor surface wear to the bronze case. We see no cracks, or repairs to the case to report to you. Beautiful porcelain face on this clock. Hand painted numbers and the red detailing between them. No hairlines or cracks to the face that we can ascertain. The brass grommets are in place around the wind arbors. The bezel is securely attached to the case.
The beveled glass in the bezel is intact, no cracking or blistering. The rear door is securely attached to the case. We have cleaned and oiled the rear pivot points on the back plate of the movement of the clock. The clock holds a good beat, with or without a pendulum, very good power.Both springs feel sound when keyed. The appropriate pendulum is with the clock.
The clock will come with a newer wind key. This is a time and bell strike clock. The bell strike strikes once on the half hour and the number of hours on the hour. The strike mechanism does work as expected. There is an " H B" maker marking on the back plate of this brass movement.Pretty typical for French makers. The clock stands 14-7/8" tall by 8-3/8" across, by 5 wide. The clock face is 3-1/16 across. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. The pictures provided both complement and supplement the listing description, so please look at them very closely as well. With old items, there is no way one can capture all the little imperfections in words, so the two media are meant to be the full description. Vide you with the ability to zoom in within the pics.
If you have not had experience with old mechanical clocks before, I would suggest you steer clear. One really needs to have the patience, and skill to work with these great works of art. They are not our modern plug in and go, or change the battery clocks.
