BEAUTIFUL 19th CENTURY GILT BRONZE FRENCH ORMOLU SEVRES SHELF CLOCK

19th CENTURY FRENCH GILT BRONZE ORMOLU SEVRES SHELF CLOCK

You are offerding on a beautiful French shelf clock made in the 19th century. I need to first emphasize that I have no knowledge of French clocks so look at the pictures closely. I purchased the clock at a local sale in a non running condition. I removed the movement to examine more closely. The movement is very clean and is stamped 10774 and 45. There is also a stamp that says MEDAILLE DE BRONZE L. MARTI et Cie. Once again, Iam not familiar with French clocks so Idon't know what that represents. Ihaverepaired a few and know that they are difficult to work on so I decided not to take this one appart. I didlubricate the pivots with some fineGerman clock oil and the movement would run on a clock stand. I did notice that the gong hammer had been broke before and had been soldered back on. Both the time and strike trains seem to operate smoothly. Whenever I placed the movement back into the case though, I could only get the movement to run for only three or fourhours before it would stop.There is not a whole lot of roomas the pendulum, verge, gong, and the back of the case are in very close proximity. The clock has to be perfectly level for it to run. I believe the verge may be making contact with the gong coil but am not for sure. The pendulum may not be original as thenumber is not the same as the movement number. The case is beautiful and flawless. It measures 14" tall, 7" wide, and 5 3/4" deep. The Sevres porcelain dial and front panel is wonderfuly painted with no cracks. The upper porcelain decoration is alsoperfect. I was told this isormolu bronze but I don't know what that means. There is a name stamped on the back of the clock above the back door but I can't make it out. It is probably the sculptor. I am listing this clock as a non-working clock, but in the right hands, can probably be adjusted properly. I will wait until the clock sells before I package it so I can answer any questions. Good luck and happy offerding.

This clock will be shipped by Parcel Select or Priority mail within the United Stated and by Priority Mail International outside of the U.S. A $5.00 handling fee will be applied to cover the cost of insurance and bubble wrap. Shipping cost will be calculated based on location of winning offer. Payment is expected within 5 days of end of sale.
