L also made an extra photoshoot of the clock, with more detailed photo's. This clock, with a height, exceeding 20 Inch -> 51 cm! Compared to a regular clock. This whole Work of Art comes in a STUNNING condition! The GILDED BRONZE Leaves on the clock will be definately.An eye-catcher in your home! The most special thing about this clock is, of course, the ROBUST, yet. VERY special is the makers name on the dial DEMEUR, HORLOGER DE. This stands for the famous clockmaker / designer DEMEUR, who. Frequently made clocks for the ROYALTIES of Kingdom of Belgium. For the movement of this clock DEMEUR had choosen the best one there. Was, at that time (1860s), made by FARRET, France.
This whole piece is so beautifully shaped........ Just imagine the amount of work which was put into this piece. All brass leaves have been shaped, soldered and gilded MANUALLY.And then there is the shape... And the symmetry of this clock in general.. The DIAL shows you the time in BLUE, Roman numbers, surrounded by.
There is a gorgeous, White, Crystal clear PORCELAIN DIAL, without ANY. The time is pointed out by simple shaped, Gilded hands.
The movement is a 14 days! Windable one, PENDULUM driven, which.
Runs great, on the second, and very important, it BELONGS to the clock. The porcelain flower on the pendulum matches the clock perfectly.
The clock and movement are most definately NOT a marriage! Collectors and resellers among us know how valueable clocks in this. Of course the movement is marked with the makers mark "FARRET" and.
The city of manufactory "PARIS". The way the clock is shaped is a WORK of ART! This beauty runs PERFECTLY ON TIME. This clock even has a chime on a clear bell.It gives 1 strike on the bell on half hours and the amount of strikes on full. Hours corresponding with the time at that moment.
Overall this clock is an excellent state but not new. Mentionable is that there is a broken leaf of 1 flower in front (photo 11). The flower on the pendule also has one broken leaf (please see photo 12). NOT disturbing at all, but I want to mention it anyway.
Please judge the quality by taking a good look at all the photo's and. YouTube video, mentioned at the top of this listing, because these. Are part of the description.This clock runs smoothly and PERFECTLY on time! Of course this clock will be supplied with a matching key. Height of the clock on top of the console, without the dome. 19.4 Inch -> 49.2 cm.
The total height, including dome. 20.5 Inch -> 51.9 cm.
Width (Base): 14.4 Inch -> 36.5 cm. Depth (Base): 8.2 Inch -> 20.8 cm.
I pack in NEW, triple layered, strong boxes and use NEW filling material. Such as NEW bubble wrap, NEW polysterene chips and NEW mattress. Please take a look at my other listings for more High Quality Clocks.
