It has the original gilding to the really heavy case and the original lever platform escapement. There are a few scratches to the glass in the backdoor else the glasses are all bevel-edged and excellent. The original porcelain dial is perfect - not even the hint of a hairline!! The original travel case still has its handle and is also in pretty good condition.Not only is the clock in wonderful condition but it is also running very strongly too striking all the quarters and the hour properly and with the repeat button functioning as it should. Timekeeping is pretty good and the time-side mainspring is of course still fitted with original stop work. In all a really top class clock in exactly the condition a collector would wish for., Age:Antique, Pre-1900, Material:Gilt bronze, Type:Mantel/ Carriage Clock, Features:Travel Case, Sub-Type:Petite sonnerie, Clock Type:Mantel/ Carriage Clock, Style/ Origin/ Theme:French
