ORMLOU CHERUB PORCELAIN MANTLE CLOCK - Outstanding quality. This is a particularly fine quality ormolu and blue porcelain clock of French manufacture circa 1870 which is in the most wonderful original condition. The 8 day bell striking movement has just been professionally restored and is in perfect working order.
The detail of the castings are quite remarkable which is enhanced by the original gilding which has polished highlights. The blue porcelain panels and numerals are in perfect order although they are a little darker in colour than my images depict. The dial is also very unusual with the cast centre and blue numerals. The images should show interested far more than my words can describe but this clock is actually nicer in real life. Personal viewing is recommended to see this lovely clock in operation Please note that the quality and rarity of this clock far exceeds the more commonly seen examples.
The clock is a very nice size that will fit in any home. It is 12 inches tall , 10 wide and 5 1/2 deep complete with its original gilded wood base.
The clock itself is about an inch less in height when removed from the base and obviously has a slightly smaller footprint The clock is in very nice condition throughout and the movement has been stripped cleaned and serviced.
