About

A very large gilt bronze clock set, circa 1880, beautifully and elaborately modelled in the Baroque style. It is profusely decorated with flowing foliage with a large urn with a coat of arms and a fretted front to allow the polished pendulum to be glimpsed gently swinging within. Candelabra have four branches of acanthus above urns to match the clock. The dial is porcelain enamel on copper with blued steel hands. There is part of the retailers signature 'Cherbourg'. The French movement is of high quality and is by Louis Japy. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a replacement.
