France Shelf Portico

Catalog Description:

C.1880, French, Portico Mantel Clock, Marble and gilt bronze in the style of a century earlier, and in very good condition. The only small shortcoming which would bother a purist is the pendulum, which is a GREAT crystal regulator pendulum with a ring of brilliants and a cast button in the center, all with original frosty gilding. We would pay $100 for the pendulum alone if it were separate. (This clock would have had a sunburst pendulum) The rest of the clock is very clean, the bell strike movement running and with a perfect porcelain dial with floral polychrome center. All the marble is sound with no chips nor cracks and all the ormolu trim is intact. Overall excellent. Height 15" Reserve $500
