Catalog Description:

C.1875, French, in the style of 1690 (Andre Chas. Boulle), a very large bracket clock, with bracket, in mostly original condition. There are some bubbles in the tortoise-shell that will need attention, but it is 98 percent intact and there is one piece of ormolu trim missing above the 12, near the crest. The movement (original) is a square factory unit, by Vincenti; the dial is heavy cast brass with individual cartouche numerals. The sunburst pendulum is original, and shares the movement number, 3253. There is profuse ormolu trim on the case, with wear to the gilding and partly painted, and some pieces show bruises and cracks. Please look at the dimensions again, as you will need a large (and strong) wall to mount this on; seems to run, but time for service; very imposing; height 59.5'
