The front has been covered with four sections of faux tortoiseshell veneer. This particular example is larger and more impressive than the usual versions I have had in the past, a real statement piece. The dial is very nice and original with beautifully shaped dial hands and Roman and standard (Arabic style) numerals and markers. Dial is in mostly good condition but does has some crazing to the surface (difficult to see when bezel is closed). It has no chips and is signed'Mappin Brothers, 66 Cheapside E.
The French movement is a 8 day version and looks in nice condition. It does need a suspension and has not been tested.
The two springs are good and fully wound. The original pendulum is included and has the same number'2779' on it as the number on the back of the movement itself, confirming its originality. This gong striking clock comes also with its winding key and measures 16.5in tall 8in wide x 5in deep. A fine quality mantle clock by a top French maker in very nice original condition.
I do not sell reproduction items or copies, I also do not clean or restore my items but prefer to offer them in a genuinely sleepy state ready for professional restoration. I often do have items for sale that are in superb'ready to use' condition and have many satisfied clients built up over 20 years. I always pack my items very well and securely using appropriate materials.Please note that as all shippers refuse to insure antique clocks in transit I cannot offer a guarentee for their safe arrival, but will always ensure that they are well protected in transit and with a recognised courier. In the unlikely event of a problem, please contact me first so that I can have the opportunity to arrange a solution.
