Antique French Gilt Brass Mantle Clock
by A. D. Mougin
~ French - Circa 1880 ~
~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~
A very decorative French antique mantle clock. It is well modelled in gilt brass with winged mythical creatures to the front, scrolling foliage and a large elaborate urn to the top. It is not too deep in design so would fit easily on a mantle and it is beautifully clean and bright in its original gilding.
The dial is also gilt brass with 12 individual enamel cartouches and blued steel hands.
The French movement is by A.D. Mougin and is of high quality. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a replacement. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the video clip below to hear the bell and watch the clock running!
Condition of the case is excellent, the original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with hardly any wear or discolouration and there are no losses. The dial is also in excellent condition just some tiny nibbles to the cartouches.
Complete with pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.
Dimensions of clock:
Height 17 1/2", Width 10 1/2", Depth 5"

About us - All of our clocks are original antiques, we source most of our clocks in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK. We prefer to buy our clocks in original 'dirty' condition. We then clean the cases using a technique we have developed over many years. We employ two qualified clockmakers who overhaul the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they will run trouble free.
