The movement is unsigned and has recentlybeen completely overhauled and is in great condition. This clock strikes on a coiled gong every 15 minutes in a Grand Sonnerie striking sequence.
The clock case has the Rose Faux finish often seen on transitional and Serpentine clocks of this period. I believe that the finish is pretty much original, just touched up. I am always amazed at how these old shellac finishes can usually be brought back to a pristine condition. It measures approximately 50 inches long by 15 inches wide at it's widest point. The pictures tell the story, just look below!
Caveats: The crown carving and bottom are more recent replacements.
This clock is really terrific , it runs well and keeps good time. This clock would be a wonderful addition to your collection.
