Seller: graham3943 (1.042) 100%, Location: Thames Ditton (nr. Hampton Court), Surrey, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 362273604324 ANTIQUE FRENCH CARRIAGE CLOCK TIMEPIECE (COMPLETELY RESTORED). IT HAS AN UNUSUAL BOW-FRONTED CASE WITH A MATCHING CONVEX FRONT GLASS AND SHAPED TOP GLASS. *CLOCK DIMENSIONS: Height with handle folded down 4 3/4 inches (12 cms); Width 3 inches (7.5 cms); Depth 2 3/4 inches (7 cms)I am retired (with professional horological training), and have been restoring antique clocks as an interest for over 35 years. I specialise in antique and vintage carriage clocks. I've worked on hundreds of these clocks over the years and this one is one of the more elegant shaped clocks I have come across: I really enjoyed overhauling and servicing it last month in the peace and quiet of my workshop (!). It is in very good condition and looks really stunning on display. BRASS CLOCK CASE: Solid brass in perfect original condition. It still has its base masking plate (these are often missing). All parts bear the same matching number (15), showing the case to be totally original. The opening rear glazed brass door is an absolute perfect fit - a good sign for obvious reasons! The case was absolutely filthy when I acquired the clock: it had obviously been stored away for years. But, it hadn't been worked on either and somewhat unusually, all the assembly screws were original and in great condition. I completely dismantled the case and then cleaned, polished and waxed each part by hand before rebuilding the case. It now has a subdued (and not over-polished), antique patina which should last for years.MOVEMENT: Excellent quality 8 day "0bis" timepiece. It has a replacement Swiss 7 jewel lever escapement and so keeps very good time. It is beautifully engineered and finished (the back plate screws for example, have all been "blued"), and is in perfect working order. There is a fast/slow adjustment lever which is reached through the opening rear door. DIAL: The white enamel-on-copper dial is original and in good condition. I repaired a small chip to the top right corner, but this can only be seen when the movement is out of the case. It has bold black roman numerals and chapter ring. The delicate polished blued steel hands are original to the movement and are in good condition. GLASSES: All five glasses are in perfect condition. The front glass is shaped to match the contours of the case and the little bevelled top glass is similarly bowed to the front. KEY: The clock comes with a classic double-ended brass carriage clock key: one end is for winding the 8-day movement and the other is for adjusting the hands.AN ELEGANT ANTIQUE FRENCH BRASS CARRIAGE CLOCK IN EXCELLENT ORIGINAL CONDITION.
