France Shelf Mystery Figural Swinging Arm

Catalog Description:

C.1880, French, Bottom Swing mystery clock. This is an interesting clock, and only the 3rd one we have seen in 30 years. Two are in Australia, one in the hands of horologist Ken Prentice, (who can fix anything). The statue of Diana, with her Bow, has her arm raised holding a torch assembly with a typical Brocot suspension unit. A special suspension spring with a T attachment at the bottom accepts a cast hook assembly which in turn supports 2 chains extending to the clock. The clock itself is a unique affair, with a circular iron pendulum suspended from the top of the movement. The case has a dark green finish and the dial with original gilt finish. Height 21 inches
