We dropped the selling price from 48,000 dollars and the make offer option is from that time . We cannot let go of it for less than the asking price , and it hurts to sell it at all as it will only go up in value.

This spectacular , gilt bronze mantel clock was expertly crafted by the celebrated French bronzeur Ferdinand Barbedienne. Designed in the extravagant Louis XV style, the timepiece is a tour-de-force of the Rococo manner. Sweeping scrolls and acanthus abound about the clock , crowned by a majestic putti. The quality and condition, both mechanically and aesthetically, of this clock make it an incredible acquisition for collectors of both clocks and sculpture. The importance and rarity of the piece is enhanced dramatically by the fact that the inner workings are signed by Barbedienne . Barbedienne was one of the most sought after founders of late 19th century France and carried contracts with some of Paris’ greatest sculptors. In partnership with Achille Collas, who invented a method for making reductions of sculptures, Barbedienne produced works by both his contemporaries such as Antoine-Louis Barye and masters like Michelangelo and Luca della Robbia. Today, pieces hailing from this foundry are extremely sought after by collectors.   Face signed "F. Barbedienne a Paris"*MOVEMENT SIGNED  "F. Barbedienne a Paris"  as well circa 1860 , and therein lies the happy surprise found after we purchased it in Paris. The Clockmaker there nearly passed out. Measures: 24.50 H x 17" W  x 12" deep.Ferdinand Barbedienne was made knight  : french  Cavalier  de la Legion d'Honneur during the second republic & Commander de la Legion d'Honneur during the 3rd Republic ( Napoleon III ) . It must be carefully shipped / transported and I personally have the clocks set by the local clockmaker when I purchase an additional one . Once moved it must be set the first time professionally ( at your home or office ) and then never again .
