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.

    vriendelijke verkoper; beschrijving van vaas was wel wat overdreven, "groen met goud iriserend" zie ik er niet in; geen onaardig kavel

    Jammer dat u geen positieve feedback wilt geven. De vaas is zoals beschreven. De goud iriserende laag hoeft niet altijd sterk aanwezig te zijn ofschoon op de foto wel goed te zien door de lichtreflectie.

  • Excellent quality, and great service. Seller included an earlier purchase that had been mistaken return to him due to postal error.

  • Good quality and excellent cooperation in dealing with the mistaken return of the shipment to the seller by the Finnish Post Office. Seller is very fair and his lots are all excellent.

  • Still haven't received them. Perhaps held up by customs, though that shouldn't be a variable having been shipped here from within the EU. Tracking shows them to be in the country, but no delivery.

    The package probably has been offered but found nobody home. Therefore the T&T shows: 'shipment available at collection location point'. Buyer should have received a notification from postal service to collect the shipment.

    Please read the descriptions well! These old pens were notified and mentioned with losses and malfunctions. Also the photo's were clear and illustrated the descriptions exactly. Unfortunately this buyer is not realistic. Catawiki did not accept his complaint either!
