A beautiful bronze 15” finial of a peasant girl holding a basket of fruit. The figure is incorporated with marble node & stand. The clock has a beveled glass door. The clock face appears to be reversed painted numerals on glass.
The finial has a metal name tag with the inscription: "MARADEUSE" Par Francois Moreau. The maker's mark, Louis Moreau is incised on the statue at the base, “L&F Moreau” in script. France is incised on the back of the statue.
The metal portion is spelter with the original gilded surface still very much intact with the exception of a small area on the girl’s wrist. Photo provided.

We will safely remove the pendulum in transit.
The figure is intact, no breaks or repairs.
The marble is very clean, bright and beautiful. No chips, cracks or repairs.
The clock works and keeps good time and the chimes work. However, the minute hand needs to be switched. It chimes once at the full hour and the full chime rings at the half hour. For instance, at 4:30 it will chime 5 times then at 5:00, it will chime only once.
The figure will turn and twist on the case and needs to be tightened. The legs also need to be tightened as they wobble. They are still intact and strong enough to hold the clock firmly.
