FRENCH, FOUR GLASS, silver plated, OVAL MANTEL CLOCK WITH VISIBLE ESCAPEMENT. CIRCA 1875.

An attractive and well proportioned oval 4-glass mantel clock.

Stock No:

The eight day duration, circular movement with visible Dead-beat Brocot escapement with garnet impulse stones also, a silver plated, double phial, temperature compensated mercurial pendulum and rack striking the hours and halfs on a bell.

Behind a 3 3/4" diameter, two-tiered white enamel dial with black Roman numerals and minute markings, silvered grommets, escape wheel carrier, separator and bezel. Also, Breguet, 'open moon' matching steel hands.

Contained in a silver plated brass, oval case with four full-length curved and bevelled glass panels, opening front and rear doors and well executed cast top and base sections.

* Oval four-glass clocks are rarer than the usual, square examples and silver plated ones are even more rare. The age deposits in the tubes are considered 'Proof of age' and occurs by the mercury in the sealed tubes drawing out lead from the soda glass. Though the gilded clocks are very beautiful, silver examples are considered to look more modern by many people. This clock will be supplied with a cloth so that a quick wipe during winding will keep it looking bright and perfect. Silver is very difficult to portray well with photography and these pictures do this clock little justice. It looks stunning 'in the flesh'!

Dimensions:                              11 3/4" high x 8" wide x 6 1/2" deep.

Circa:                                        1875.

Condition:                                  Excellent other than deposits in the sealed pendulum tubes.

Price:                                         £3,250.00.
