Very Nice French 8 Day Bell Striking Marble Mantle Clock. Well made and small size French 8 day mantle clock in a nice marble and slate case. The front has two green marble strips to the side, the remainder of the case is Belgium slate and measures 8.5in tall x 8in wide x 5in deep approx.
The sides of the case have some staining and have been blackened at some point? This 8 day bell striking movement is signed on the back'Japy Freres and is numbered'3486'. The pendulum has the same number which means they are original to each other. The springs are good and fully wound and has a good bell which rings well.
When the hands are manually rotated it strikes as it should. The enamel dial has some fine hairline cracks and a chip near the right winding hole but overall its good and has nice moon hands. The bezel with bevelled glass are good but have a couple of scratches which should polish out. There is no glass in the rear door.
Comes with a key and pendulum. Postal costs refer to UK mainland addresses. I do not sell reproduction items or copies, I also do not clean or restore my items but prefer to offer them in a genuinely sleepy state ready for professional restoration.
