France Shelf Portico

Catalog Description:

C.1825, French, Empire Mantel clock. For similar clocks, see Tardy, 1975 Ed, part 2, page 398. The well made bell strike movement is unsigned, and has been converted from silk suspension to spring (vacant hole at top of dial and movement). Additionally, one of the fine ormolu rosettes is missing from the left side, but you could move one from the rear to help this, or certainly re-cast one. Dial with hairline crescent at 6. The portico is decorated with two bare breasted female trumpeters at top and with wreaths and geometric castings on the base, the multi piece columns with extra detail. Height 18 inches
