Beautiful 18th-century comtoise with curved dial and cast cock with Phrygian cap.

The cap was worn in modern times by the Jacobins and was a symbol of liberty during the American Revolutionary war and the French Revolution.
It has been the national symbol of France to this day.
The cap was the symbol of the French people, once enslaved (by the feudal system), now unchained and free.

Clock strikes a bell every full and half hour, with repetition strike every full hour, the half hours are struck via forced strike of the running movement.
The case features beautiful flat doors and back plate and beautiful slim hand-sawn steel hands.

The clock has been completely restored and cleaned, the clock is also equipped with new red ropes, wooden winding spools, steel gears, steel winding wing for the striking mechanism and old wire pendulum with lead blade.

The original dial is pristine.

This clock runs and strikes as it should!

Clock comes complete with bracket and key.

Height: 25.5 cm
Width: 24.5 cm
Depth: 14 cm

Height including casting: 37 cm
Pendulum length: 123 cm

The photos are part of the description.

Clock can be shipped, well-packaged and insured, but pick-up in Almelo or Albergen (the Netherlands) is preferred.

    O relógio chegou com diversos problemas no seu funcionamento. Posteriormente cheguei a acordo com o vendedor, que nunca se furtou ao diálogo, para posterior compensação em outra compra.
