Item:263550873756A VERY PRETTY FRENCH 8DAY MANTEL CLOCK WITH INTRICATE INLAY TO ITS RICH ROSEWOOD CASE c1800 This is a beautifully cased French 8 day mantel clock from the early 1800's. Please see the attached photographs which are an integral part of this description. The super rosewood case has a deep warm colouring which contrasts perfectly with the intricate satinwood floral inlay. There is also fine inlaid edge banding around the front and side surfaces. There is minor loss to the case at the rear of the top surface (please see photos) however this is barely noticeable when the clock is in use and in my view does not detract significantly from the overall presentation of the clock. The superb floral inlay on the clock case front is all intact. The face has original fingers and attractive navy blue Roman numerals. The name: " Hodgson et Cie" and Paris appear in script. The registered number 5449 is also on the face. Typically for a clock of this age, the face has minor cracking but this is really only visible on close inspection. There is also a small chip on the outer edge of the face, near 6 on the dial (please see photos. ) The French movement has a silk suspension and, once set up, keeps very good time when wound regularly. The clock has been in use until very recently and it's bell makes a delightful, clear and genteel sound when the hour and half hours strike. Overall a very attractive, functional and desirable clock. Dimensions: 35cm x 13.5cm x 22cm OVERSEAS BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This item can be shipped worldwide, subject to the schedule of excluded countries noted in the listing.
