Seller: reggieandhenry (336) 100%, Location: Mitcham, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 113940075206 This is a very good condition large size brass stringing French Portico clock striking on a nickel plated bell on the hour with the hour number and singularly on the half hour. This clock unusually for a Portico clock has the original square rather than a round movement that runs correctly. The clock has the fancy and I believe original temperature compensated brass/bi-metal/porcelain faced pendulum which is also in good condition. The ebonised and lacquered brass strung casework is without signs of past or present woodworm infestation, unusual for these clocks. The porcelain is trademark by the retailer V Laplagne of Paris and the base of the top is incised with 70 in Roman numerals which I take is 1870 the year of manufacture.There are a few hairlines on the dial which maybe possible to bleach out and a few chips around the winding appertures which have been colleted with fine brass collets in keeping with clock style and age, the suspension hanger for the pendulum is also not original to this movement but adequate for the job, there are also a few tiny corner knocks but nothing serious and you would have to look closely to see them.The clock is 49 cm high x 27 cm wide x 15 cm deep and obviously heavy, for despatch I will plate the front and back with wood for added protection which unfortunately will add to the weight. A winding key will be supplied.As with all clocks I recommend a clean and service and this may require "setting up" upon despatch.As usual I will start with a £9.99 bid.Post worldwide with EBAY GSP insured or collect from South London. Clock Type: Mantel/ Carriage Clock, Style/ Origin/ Theme: French
