Seller: elsiej03 (1.595) 100%, Location: Bristol, Avon, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 183771794275 Elegant antique French pendulum Mantle Clock manufactured by Vincenti et Cie between 1834 - 1855 and retailed by Rollins a Paris. The clock is a large ebonised wood mantle clock, with classical fluted sides, an opening bevelled glass front, brass bezel and an enamelled dial with winding holes for both Clock and chime set into the face. The clock is fully marked on both the dial and mechanism with the retailers mark of Rollins A Paris and there is a further mark for the Medaille d’argent Vincenti & Cie inside. The Medaille d’argent (silver medal) was awarded by King Louis Philippe and the Mark was allowed to be used thereafter or until another medal was awarded. This particular Mark is for 1834 (another being awarded in 1855) but that does not necessarily mean that this Clock was manufactured in 1834. To narrow the date down further the Retailer is a good indicator of age. Rollins a Paris between 1840 and 1850 is a more likely timeframe. Particulars Dimensions 31 x 23 x 17.2cm Condition The body of the clock is in fine antique condition. The front and reverse opens and closes perfectly, the bevelled glass has an area of wear to the middle. Enamelled dial has cracks to the bottom and chips around winding hole, All Roman numerals clear and legible. Mechanism The clock works but stops (this is probably due to needing to be regulated either by levelling or some other means. I am not sure if the bell is contemporary with the clock as the chime arm works but doesn’t seem to reach the bell. The clock would benefit from being serviced. Packaging To ensure the clocks safe arrival, the pendulum, bell and key will be bubble wrapped and boxed separately this will be put inside an oversized box along with the generously wrapped clock which will be suspended in s shaped void fill.On 12-Apr-19 at 17:05:34 BST, seller added the following information: For delivery quotes of up to 75% off standard rates - try Shiply:Get Free QuotesI want to put this into my own eBay listings Age: Antique, Pre-1900, Type: Mantel/ Carriage Clock, Sub-Type: Mantel Clock, Material: Ebonised Wood, Style/ Origin/ Theme: French, Clock Type: Mantel/ Carriage Clock, Features: Chimes
