Seller: timerunner56 (930) 100%, Location: Bournemouth, Dorset, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 293117450452 A Delightful Small French Black Marble Mantle Clock With Brass DialA delightful and small sized French striking mantle clock. This black marble/slate clock is keeping time to a few minutes each day without any adjustment. With a clean and service and setting up correctly should run extremely well. Most versions of this type of clock have enamel or black dials, where as this particular piece has an engraved brass dial. This is extremely unusual and is a sure sign of quality. The Roman numerals and markers are engraved while the centre is beautifully decorated. There are a few extremely minor edge nibbles none of which detract from the clock. The hands are original and finely detailed. The dial is covered by a brass bezel which has thick bevelled glass. This is replicated at the back door (some minor scratches that should polish out)The French movement is an 8 day version and looks in nice condition. It has the makers mark, a star with the letters 'A.B' in it along with the number '4687' which is also found on the pendulum. This confirms that they are both original to each other. Measures 7.25in tall x 6.75in wide x 4.5in deep. A fine smaller size 8 day mantle clock that has the rarer brass dial.
