~ French - Circa 1870 ~
 
~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~
 
A very fine and substantial ormolu clock by the clockmaker Vincenti. Stunning Rococo balloon form of sweeping acanthus swags, scrolls and floral flourishes. To the top of a beautifully modelled figure of cupid, drawing back on his bow ready to fire an arrow.
 
The large dial is porcelain enamel on copper with its original, beautifully incised gilt hands and convex glass. The rear door is also glazed to allow the movement to be seen.
 
The French movement is of high quality and is by Vincenti et Cie. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a replacement. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. We have a video of the clock, please ask and we will send you a link or paste this into your browser: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wP_Spvfc5i8
 
Condition of the case is excellent, the original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with hardly any wear or discolouration. The dial is also in excellent condition just some tiny nibbles to the winding holes. The original glass has a few small and very light scratches.
 
Vincenti clockmaker's mark on the movement backplate
