Mechanical - 8 day verge escapement movement - Half hour striking on a bell.
Beautiful 18th century Comtoise with a convex dial and a sun-head casting.
Clock strikes a bell every half and full hour, with repetition on full hours.
The clock has flat doors and back plate, wooden winding spools, iron clock governor, lead weights, pear-shaped pendulum and beautiful, slender, hand-sawed brass hands.
The clock was cleaned entirely, serviced and adjusted. In addition, the clock was also fitted with new red ropes,
old weights and an old pendulum swing with weight.
The dial is pristine!
This clock runs and strikes as it should!
This clock, with this casting, with sun, openworked medallion with five-point star and angels on both sides, can be dated exactly, because these were only made during the 'Directoire' era in France.
The Directoire (also called French Directory in English) was the five-member committee that governed France during a part of the French Revolution, from 1795 to 1799. The term is also used for the period in French history during which the Directoire governed the country.
The clock comes complete with bracket and winding key.
