Delightfully diminutive ormolu mounted pink marble boudoir clock

~ French - Circa 1900 ~

~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~

A beautiful boudoir or desk clock standing at 11" in height. It is Louis XVI in style, made of an exquisite salmon pink specimen marble and mounted with fine ormolu mounts of acanthus, scrolls and flaming torché. A small handled urn sits on top.

The dial is enamel on copper with delicate floral swags and finely fretted gilt brass hands. It is signed for the retailer Roger of Nantes who is listed as active in 1890 by Tardy, Dictionnaire Des Horlogers.

The French movement is by Mougin and is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a original. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the video clip below to hear the bell and watch the clock running!

Condition of the case is excellent, marble has a lovely finish with just some slight nibbles to the edges. The original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with hardly any wear or discolouration and there are no losses. The dial is also in excellent condition just some nibbles next to the winding holes. 

   
A.D. Mougin clockmaker's mark on the movement backplate and the retailers mark of Roger of Nantes

Complete with original pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.
