Antique Clock Set ~ Ormolu and White Marble

~ French  - Circa 1890 ~

~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~

A stunning classical original antique French clock set, beautifully modelled in  crisp, white marble mounted with ormolu (finely gilded brass / bronze). The  clock movement is held aloft in a gilded drum by 4 white marble pillars with  floral swags between. The ormolu pendulum is visible swinging below. Between the  pillars is a charming figure of Cupid, carrying his torch to light the flame of  love. To the top  is a pair of love birds with a flaming torché and a quiver  of arrows, seated amongst a swag of roses. The swags and love birds are a  darker colour, contrasting nicely with the ormolu and the white marble. The candelabra are conforming in style with three lights and arms modelled as ornate foliage  with mythical creatures.

The dial is enamel on copper with delicate floral swags between the numerals and finely fretted gilt brass hands. The bezel is fitted with convex glass.

The French movement is by A. D. Mougin and is of high quality.  It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker.  The ormolu Pendulum is a replacement. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the video clip below to hear the bell and watch the clock running!

Condition of the case is excellent, the original gilding is  beautifully clean and bright with hardly any wear or discolouration and there  are no losses. The marble has discoloured in places to a mellow off-white and  there are some nibbles to the edges and a knocked corner to the left hand side  rear of the base of the clock. The dial is also in excellent condition  with no chips or scratches, just some very slight fading to the lettering. The set makes a stunning display as you can see  below.

Complete with pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up  instructions supplied if required.

About us  - All of our clocks are original antiques, we source most of our clocks in  France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK. We prefer to buy our clocks in  original 'dirty' condition. We then clean the cases using a technique we have  developed over many years. We employ two qualified clockmakers who overhaul  the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they  will run trouble free.
