FABULOUS ANTIQUE FRENCH KEY WIND GREEN ONYX MARBLE, BRASS & CHAMPLEVE MINIATURE CLOCK!
Outstanding Made in France signed boudoir, dresser or miniature clock. Lovely green onyx case with wisps of white here and there...very minor, faint hairline on the top plateau at the front (Photos 2, 3) ...nothing that truly detracts. Acorn finails throughout...one on top of the movement housing and one at each side of the neck of the case on the top plateau. Each are in fine condition with one of the acorns at the neck being just a hint loose. Still stays in place nicely and can be tighted down. One more acorn appears upside down below the top plateau...again in fine condition. Below all, is a pretty brass Dove, sitting on the beautifully hand done champleve art piece medallion. This compliments the chapleve work done at the neck of the clock also, all of which are in very fine condition with vivid color. Two brass columns accent the area between the top and bottom plateaus...below all are four brass adjustable feet for level. Inside the convex front glass we have a pretty porcelain dial with gold hour and minute hands which accent the black hour numbers to 12, and the gold hour numbers to 24. No mars are noted save for a bit of looseness of the convex glass dial cover. Inside the hinged brass movment back door, we have a set of key wind works marked Made in France and Z. No other makers marks are found. After many years in storage with the estate collection, when wound, the clock started right up and continued to run. Stunning clock for display in your collection! Measures in at 10 & 1/2" tall to the top of the finial. As with all of our estate timepieces and clocks, we highly recommend a professional cleaning with final adjustments after shipment to you, for proper working accuracy. Ask questions if you have them...will be carefully packed and shipped promptly upon confirmation of your payment.
