Compagnie Des Bronzes Large and Stunning Classical Gilt Bronze Clock Set

$4,202.91per set

About

A stunning original gilt bronze clock set by the famous bronze foundry "Compagnie Des Bronzes" of Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, Brussels. It is of fine quality, beautifully finished and gilded and is modelled in a restrained and chic classical style. The clock is surmounted by an urn, mythical creatures form the two handles. To the sides are masks and it sits on scroll feet. The matching Candelabra are specially designed to sit on a mantle shelf with the sconces arranged in two rows. Compagnie Des Bronzes built an international reputation for monumental bronzes, producing many important items. Their signature mark is on the rear of the clock, the movement and one of the candelabra. The dial is heavy silvered bronze with convex glass. It is mounted with 12 individual enamel cartouches and is complete with original fretted blued steel hands. The French movement is of very high quality and has the "Cie Des Bronzes" mark on the movement backplate. It is of the best quality, featuring rack striking and pin-pallet escapement. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is original. It runs for 8 days on one wind and strikes the hours and halves on a sonorous coiled gong. We have a video clip available of the clock running. Condition of the case is excellent with clean and bright, highly polished finish and there are no losses. There are some minor areas of wear, marks and discoloration in places. The dial has some very slight chipping around the enamel cartouches and a couple of light scratches to the silvering. Complete with original pendulum and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.
