I made an extra photoshoot, showing you dozens of detailed. Photos, which can be seen by clicking the following YouTube. This clock, with its weight exceeding 12 kg's!
Almost 33 Inches, cannot be compared to its smaller brothers and. The MARBLE BASE comes in gorgeous GREEN colours and. The statue itself is in an AMAZING condition! It has been made by LEON PILET, who was extremely famous.
In the 2nd half of the 1800's, because of his breathtaking work. The name of the statue is "L'AURORE", and it even won a PRIZE. In Paris, which is on the name tage, in front: MEDAILLE DU. Winning this prize meant you belonged to the TOP RANGE of.
At the rear, there is a stamp in the metal, mentioning that this piece. Was made in France "FABRICATION FRANCAISE". The numbers on the ball, the clock itself, will be an eyecatcher in. Note that I completely RESTORED this Work of Art. Everything is VERY Clean; also the SERVICED movement.
The numbers on the ball have all been removed, were cleaned and. Polished and assembled back again. The most special thing about this clock is, of course, the ROBUST. The ball, on top so beautifully shaped that it is timeless! Please take a look at the shapes...
And the a-symmetrical shape of. The numbers on the ball are made of SHINING BRASS, in a. FANTASTIC condition, showing you the time. The weight of the clock is heavy, because it is made of ZAMAC.An alloy which was invented in the time that bronze was more. Windable, (short) pendulum driven movement. Which runs great, ON TIME, and very important, it BELONGS to the. The clock and movement are most definately NOT a marriage!
Collectors and resellers among us know how valueable clocks in. The way the clock is shaped is an artwork on itself! This beauty runs PERFECTLY ON TIME. This clock even has a chime on a clear bell. It gives 1 strike on the bell on half hours and the amount of strikes.On full hours corresponding with the time at that moment. Note that the bell sound is MODEST, because the bell itself is. Positioned in the heavy, metal ball, with only one small gap. Underneath the ball, and one on the rear. I did not want the make additional gaps, to make the bell chime. Louder, to save the authenticity of this clock. Overall this clock is an excellent state but not new. I applied BLACK FELT underneath the marble base, to not let the. Marble damage the surface the clock stands on.
The photo of the movement does not show you the bell. I removed this to show you the movements condition.
Please judge the quality by taking a good look at all the photo's. And YouTube video, because these are part of the description.
This clock runs smoothly and PERFECTLY on time! Of course this clock comes with a matching key. Assembling it back again when you unpack the clock, is a matter.
A video demonstration of how to do this will be sent. Diameter Base: 10.0 Inch -> 25.5 cm. Diameter Ball (on top): 6.1 Inch -> 15.5 cm. I pack in NEW, triple layered, strong boxes and use NEW filling.
