The clock face is porcelain with Arabic numerals and a delicate hand painted floral pattern around the numerals. The hands are ornate French hands. The urns are teardrop shaped on a round pedestal.
The movement is an 8 day movement (wind it once a week). The clock rings on a sweet French bell on the hour and half hour. The clock has been cleaned, oiled, and serviced and is in running condition. There are two minor condition issues on the back side of the clock.
The brass at the base of the center column is partially cracked. There is also a small marble chip on the top, back of one of the clock urns. Both can be seen in the photos.
These issues are both on the back of the clockor urn and do not detract from the function or beauty of the piece. The dimensions of the clock are: height 18.5", width 9.5", and depth 5. The urns are: height 11.75", width 4.5" and depth 4.0. Our brick and mortar business is the sales and repairs of clocks. All of the clocks have been reconditioned (cleaned, oiled, and serviced) and are in running condition at the time of sale.
If a clock should have issues such as it is non-running or there are case repairs, this will be clearly stated in the description. Your clock will also need to be leveled in order to run. Some clocks require a more detailed set up and may require a professional to adjust or set up the clock. We go to great lengths to provide accurate descriptions of our clocks, watches and collectibles. In spite of our research, we are not expert in every type of clock or collectible.
