France Shelf Tape

Catalog Description:

C.1850, French, Annular dial clock, time and strike, in an unusual case of cast iron together with hammered iron designs. First, the pendulum is a modern replacement that is not suitable, although the clock will tick with it. Aside from this, it is a very high quality movement with a complex contrate wheel set up coming off the front of the movement and transferring power up to the top center of the movement, where a five spoke hub fans out to carry the single hour annular dial in blue, black and gold. Between the black and white numeral shield are the signs of the Zodiac in gold. I imagine it had some type of hammered iron pendulum. Very heavy. Height 28 1/2"
