Description of item for sale:
This gilt bronze and Carrera marble clock is from France and it dates to the Louis XVI period of the late 1700’s. This clock is in good antique condition with some damage and wear that is described below. All of the dore bronzework is beautifully patinated and we guarantee that the metal is bronze, not spelter or some other base metal. The gilding shows a very small amount pitting and tarnishing consistent with its age. The only damage we note on the bronzework is that we can see that there were originally 5 flowers in the crown. One of the two marble pillars shows a repair (see photos). There is also minor staining of the marble. The eight day time only clockworks with a silk thread suspension do not show any maker’s marks. The works are clean, complete and run very well. Dimensions: 15.5” high, 8“ wide, 3“ deep. Please be sure to check at the bottom of this listing to see if any corrections or answers to questions have been posted.
