Mechanical - 8-day movement - bell strikes every full and half hour

Offered up for auction: a rare fire-gilt Empire mantel clock 'cage' by LEPAUTE a PARIS.
Paris, circa 1807. Signed on the dial: Lepaute, a Paris.
Authentic eight-day mechanical movement with wire suspension and a pendulum with 'lens' adjustable in height. Bell strikes every full and half hour.
The whole case is set all around in 4 glass windows. The back can be opened via a bronze glass lid. All glass windows are pristine.
Dial with Roman numerals and gold-plated hands. Completely undamaged, no chips.

Height: 42 cm.

The mantel clock is in very good condition.
The original fire gilding ('dorure au mercure') is in exceptionally fine top condition! Please see photos.
Only very minimal spots of oxidation.
The original 'epoque' movement maybe has to be cleaned and/or fine-tuned. Therefore, its working condition cannot be guaranteed.
Maintenance history can be determined based on the inside of the bell.
* See the identical mantel clock by Lepaute in the national museum, Chateau de Fontainebleau.

Literature: Pendules et bronzes d'ameublement entrés sous le Premier Empire, Jean - Pierre Samoyault. Inspectéur Général des musées de France Conservateur en chef du musée national du Chateau de Fontainebleau. Page 69, figure 32. Please see the photos.

This mantel clock will be very well-packaged and shipped registered.
