Seller: boilyhead (1.288) 100%, Location: wilts, Ships to: Americas & many other countries, Item: 333372680298 Here for auction is a rare 19c French "Swinger/Mystery" clock by the well known maker of inventive and unusual clocks "Andre Romain Guilmet ". He was famous for complex mechanical inventions and incorporated many of these into industrial/mystery clocks. This one is very large standing 33 inches high[84cm] and is fully stamped on the back plate "GLT" and numbered. It is also signed on the base for the artist who designed the figure "Kossowski". It has the original engraved metal label to the front " La Nuit"{At Night] also signed Kossowski. The beautiful scantily clad woman is holding aloft the swinging clock and is leaning on a crescent moon with stars. The base is red rouge marble and contrast well with the bronzed finish of the figure. This is spelter with gilded parts which are quite rubbed but quite acceptable and natural considering the age. The clock works and swings well but the hands seem a bit loose on the spindle so timekeeping is not accurate and will need attention but its quite a simple mechanism so might be an easy fix for someone with a little knowledge. The original dial is badly cracked but I have found a replacement dial same size and in perfect order so easily changed and included with it. The figure has some marks and faint scratches consummate with age and use but as photo's show it displays very well. The figure is very heavy but will be well packed or you are welcome to view and inspect before hand should you wish. Being sold for slight attention and not working correctly. Please feel free to ask any questions or call 01225 863706H or 07512431858M for a friendly chat. P.S overseas note it will only be sent via global shipping program.On 24-Oct-19 at 08:02:35 BST, seller added the following information: The clock has its back plate cover. Clock Type: Mantel/ Carriage Clock, Style/ Origin/ Theme: French
