c1820 French Antique Tall Case Clock

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Extremely beautiful antique rustic Country French tall case clock made from walnut with a restored movement. This is one of the oldest clocks we've ever had. If you look closely at image 4 there is an imperfection on the bottom left corner of the glass, it almost looks like packing tape, but it is in fact an imperfection-- it is not damaged. Furthermore, the right side of the clock does not have raised panels, it is flat-- we do not have a logical explanation for this.
