It has a duration of 8 days and is in excellent and original working condition. The well-proportioned case is in excellent condition and veneered in walnut with a very good gloss finish and a nice patina consistent with a well preserved antique. The case has been well cared for over the years and as with most of these transitional style cases the design is quite refined and elegant without the large tuned pillars found on some of the later Vienna regulators. .The arched door is of the one piece design with a detachable ebonised carved cresting on the top. Another unusual feature of this clock is the base, constructed with two mouldings applied to a backboard with a carved bracket in the centre As with all French clocks the movement is of the highest standard having solid plates and pinions and dead beat escapement for accurate time keeping. The movement is clean and original to the case. It is keeping excellent time and striking reliably. Striking is every hour (once for each hour indicated) and then once for every half hour on a coiled steel gong fixed to the movement mounting bracket The white porcelain dial is in excellent condition with the exception of some minor hairlines. The steel hands and the elaborate grid iron type pendulum are also in excellent condition and are of typical French design As can be seen from the photographs, although well over 100 years old this clock is in superb original condition requiring no restoration at all. Height 34 inches Max Width 12 . 1/2 inches Max Depth 5 inches Dial diameter 5 inches.
