France Shelf Figural

Catalog Description:

C.1830, French, Mini Ormolu figural clock, titled "Gare La Bombe", or the bombs of war, with a cannon spewing forth clouds of smoke as it spews out a winged cherub. Most of the original fire gilding is intact and the detail is nicely chased. The movement is adapted from a French crown verge watch of the period (quite a common power source for these miniatures), winding is through the dial. Porcelain dial is perfect and gilt hands are original. With a key made out of an old watch cock. Height 7.5 inches
