Item:273976006830Hi I have for sale a beautiful 1870/80s French open escapement black slate and green marble clock in a very nice case style in very good condition with the movement having been fully restored and having the rare John Ellicott pendulum. The Case The case is solid very shiny black marble with green marble in very good original condition not blacked in or painted and with out any damage to the green/white marble, she stands 16.5” high x 12.5” wide x 6” in depth. The top houses the most perfect visible escapement works covered by bevelled glass and cast bezels. This is the most original example of this clock I have ever owner she is just stunning. The bottom window frame front and rear doors and the pendulum still retain there original gilding intact this clock has been really looked after and loved you will be hard pressed to find another like this. The black door has a crack running along it but it is strong and only seen from behind. . The Dial The dial again has no damage in white porcelain, it has Roman numerals and black moon hands all totally original to this clock, and the dial is covered by a thick 4mm bevelled glass and brass bezel. All the front workings still retain their original gilding and the movement retains the ruby jewelled pallets. The centra dial has a couple of small cracks to the left of the left winding hole but very small. The dial and movement are signed by the maker. The Movement The movement is a 14 day time and strike, this movement was stripped down springs out cleaned and serviced in September 2015 so keeps great time over the week and strikes on a large sweet silver well-tuned bell. Overall a very nice clock that retains all original features and a very rare example find another which retains the original pendulum and key, I will post but will help with a courier, taxi or whatever helps. I will pack for your own courier .Age:Antique, Pre-1900, Material:Marble/ Stone, Type:Mantel/ Carriage Clock, Features:Chimes, Sub-Type:Mantel Clock, Clock Type:Mantel/ Carriage Clock, Style/ Origin/ Theme:French
