A lovely early French porcelain clock by Samuel Marti. Beautifully styled in the Rococo style with C scrolls and flowing foliage. Delicately decorated with exquisite bouquets of flowers and heightened with gilt.
 
The dial is porcelain enamel on copper with blue lettering and finely cut blued steel hands. The dial is signed for the retailer Hodgkins and Co. Please note that this type of clock does not have a front or rear bezel or a rear cover.
 
The French movement is of high quality and is by Samuel Marti. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is original.
