Antique French Ormolu & Porcelain Striking Clock & Garnitures Set 3 Pces Working
For sale here is this superb, antique French mantel clock and garniture set, with porcelain urns and panels. The lovely, ormolu case has pine cone finials and lion's paw feet. The clock strikes the hours and half-hours on a bell. It has an 8-day movement which is not marked but is impressed with the serial number 2557. It comes with a key. The Sevres type porcelain dial, panels and urns are all hand-painted. The large panel on the clock is beautifully painted with a courting couple in a landscape. The dial is painted with flowers, the pillars are painted with flowers, blue ribbons and bows and the urn is painted with flowers. The panels on the garnitures are painted with countryside scenes and the urns are painted with birds and flowers. The porcelain has a very attractive deep pink/claret-coloured ground. This is a beautiful antique set, which looks wonderful on display. The clock measures approximately 16 1/2 inches high, 9 1/2 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches deep. The garnitures are 12 3/4 inches high.
The set is in very good antique condition. The clock movement has been checked over and oiled. Please view all the photos for details, as they form part of the description. All items are securely packed. I use large bubble and strong boxes to pack.
