This clock does not come with the winding device I was told you could find one in antique shops but I never got round to it. Below is the description that was on it when I bought it. This is indeed a most charming and very elegant french gilt clock. It chimes on a bell on the hour and the half hour.
The clock , measuring approx 31cm high and 31 cm wide. The gilt is very good.One of the feet is broken off you can see clearly in the photos (front left). A most beautiful clock which deserved a beautiful home. When placed upon a fine piece of furniture or upon a mantelpiece. They work together in perfect harmony as I have tried to show in my photographs. In my opinion these lovely antique French clocks add a touch of superior quality to the elegant room. The chimes sound delightful and remind me of more halcyon days. These fine antiques are a sheer delight to. Both senses of sight and sound.. And are also one of the most important.
