Nice French White Marble & Ormolu Mantle Clock. Very nice French 8 day bell striking French clock with a quality white marble (not alabaster) and ormolu case all in good condition (some very minor edging nibbles). The figure is of a small child kneeling on a cushion perhaps praying?
This figure is gilt bronze and is a little dirty but should clean up well. It has retained its original brass feet. The countwheel escapement is ticking away and is signed'Ravisse, a Calais', not a usual stamp! The enamel dial also has the same name on it. The dial has a hairline crack through it along with chips near the winding holes (see photos) but has retained its original hands.
The nice bezel has glass which is a little loose. No glass also to back door.The movement is ticking away and striking as it should and the spring is good and fully wound. It has also retained its key and pendulum pendulum possibly not original? Measures 14in high x 9in wide x 6in deep. Postal costs refer to UK mainland addresses.
