A very decorative clock set. Pottery bodies are blue glazed and decorated with over-glaze gilt stylised flowers in the Art Nouveau style. The pottery is mounted with gilded brass bases and candelabra. To the base of each is an impressed mark De Winter et Fils Brussels.
The dial is enamel on copper, lettered with Art Nouveau style numbers and is decorated with a delicate floral swag. It is complete with original blued steel hands.
The French movement is by Société Clusienne of Cluses near the Swiss border. It is of the good quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully serviced by our clockmaker. Pendulum has been replaced and it runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the movie below to hear the bell and watch the clock running!
