~ French - Circa 1890 ~
~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~
A rare and beautiful antique French clock garniture, in excellent original condition. Ormolu (fine gilded bronze) is mounted with exquisitely painted Sčvres style porcelain. Porcelain is very finely painted with maidens and putti on a cream ground. The clock is glazed to all four sides with beveled glass to allow the movement to be seen and the porcelain mounted pendulum to be seen gently swinging.
The clock is of architectural design with and arched top and Corinthian columns with porcelain. To the top is an urn painted with a putto. Ovoid urn side pieces are beautifully painted with maidens to the front and romantic ruins to the revervse. The clock displays beautifully all round so could be displayed in the centre of a room or in front of a mirror. The dial is also porcelain decorated with a putto and is fitted with its original finely cut hands.
The French movement is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is original, ormolu with silver steel rod and inset with porcelain. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a gong.

Condition of the case is excellent, the original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with some slight wear and discolouration mostly on the high spots and pendulum. Porcelain is also excellent with very slight wear to the over-glaze gilt decoration and some light hairlining to the right hand rear pillar. Glass is very good, just a slight chip to the front door bottom left corner.
Artist's signature on the vases.
Complete with original pendulum and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.
