Antique Old Paris porcelain cased mantel clock and original plinth, perfect condition and clockworks working fine. On the dial/face: "Chapelle, PARIS".
Entirely hand painted, raised gold ornamentation on sides. Face wind, complete with pendulum and key. I'm really unsure of the movement - 1 or 8-day.Haven't wound in full. Superb hand painted floral cartouche front, back, and on plinth front. In the manner of Sevres, very Louis XVI. I believe it to be mid-1800s, however - Louis XVI style. Full measurements noted on photos. Very good to excellent condition throughout, age and type considered. I can find no flaws to note, really. The pendulum is tricky to mount, as it hooks onto a thick thread inside. The mechanism is working (2 photos show it ticking, the mount for pendulum moving side to side). The case and plinth haven't so much as a tiny chip. There are wear spots on the top of the plinth or plateau which correspond to where the legs of the clock rest, likely moved often in winding through the 170 or so years of use. Face wind for both mechanism and chime. Beautiful front and back, with a metal cover over the clock's back. No need to take it off as it is also the mount anchor for the clockworks.
Mount the pendulum carefully from underneath. I did it - you can, too. We're easy to deal with. Our fine inventory is very important. And your ranking of our performance is also very important!
