A very impressive and substantial antique French table clock, modelled in brass in the classical style. It features a beautiful large enamel dial with fine blued steel hands. To the sides are red velvet backed sound frets, finely detailed, to enable the sonorous gong strike to be fully appreciated. The caddy top is draped with floral swags.
The French movement by Fritz Marti and is of the highest quality. It is the large plate version of the Pendule de Paris movement and has the superior rack striking and pin-pallet escapement. It is complete with it's original pendulum. It runs on one wind and strikes the hours and half-hours on a sonorous coiled gong.
