Seller: zeds5 (200) 100%, Location: Bristol, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 153806657107 This slate and Marble mantle clock measures 20cm wide x 12cm deep x 23cm high. It was assessed by an expert, who said it was made in Paris between 1880-1920.We're selling this as part of a downsizing move - it's been ornamental for us because the mechanism wasn't working when we inherited it and we liked just having it for the way it looks.The expert assessor (a clockmaker) viewed it in 2004, suggesting three possible fixes. Either 'the movement is rubbing the back of the crutch, or the spring & block' in which case the movement needs to be aligned to 'horizontal truth', or the suspension may be out of alignment and/or the suspension spring may be too stiff so there's not enough impulse to drive the pendulum. His estimate for repair was (depending on the issue) between £125 and (at the very most) £250In working order, the piece should fetch £400-£600 at auction Featured Refinements: Marble Clock, Style/ Origin/ Theme: French, Clock Type: Mantel/ Carriage Clock
