France Shelf Tape

Catalog Description:

C.1890, French, Three Graces Annular Dial clock in very good as-found condition. The marble base is intact, and decorated on all 3 sides with fanciful sprays of ormolu. The 3 nude ladies, or graces, hold the ball aloft and acanthus swags are draped from each ladies hands to the next. The well made movement strikes on a bell and is wound by removing the top of the ball. See virtually identical clock pictured in Tardy's La Pendule Francaise, part II, page 291, fig 3. Also see Sotheby's Meraux sale (6-28-93), lot371, which sold 8 years ago for $13,225. Needs some detailing to remove dirt from the crevices. Height 30 inches
