A beautiful original antique French portico clock, circa 1880. It is made of white marble mounted with ormolu (finely gilded bronze). The movement is held aloft on four marble pillars with the ormolu pendulum swinging gently below. The dial is prettily painted with floral swags between the numbers on porcelain enamel.

The French movement is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a replacement.
