Nice Quality French Ormolu & Marble Striking Mantle Clock. A great quality clock that has retained its original gilding on bronze, not spelter. There is a depiction of a bearded man on each side. The top has an urn and swags along with 2 rams heads.Above this is a finial which may not be original but does look good. The gilding is generally very good and has been highlighted in places in silver? There are also panels made of either marble or onyx?
The dial is good and has finely detailed hands. Some of the numbers have rubbed partially off so will need some minor touching in. The movement was made by'Gay Vicarino & Co, Paris and has a'Japy Freres' stamp on it, a well known french maker. This clock measures 15in tall and is striking well when the hands are manually rotated.
It also comes with a bell and key, and a pendulum is included which may not be the original. The two springs are good and fully wound and should work after a good clean and service.
