Stunning Antique French Clock, Cherub Carriers
- Circa 1900 ~
~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~
A beautiful original antique French clock, two cherubs struggle to carry the
clock mounted in a marble case with the sunburst pendulum swinging below. To the
top of the case is a quiver of arrows and a bow. The cream enamel dial is
decorated with delicate floral swags and is fitted with the original finely
fretted gilt brass hands.
The French movement is by A. D. 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
very good, the gilding is beautifully clean and bright with some wear and
discolouration. The marble has a good finish with some minor discolouration and
some nibbles to the edges, particularly to the marble drum. The dial is also in excellent
condition just some tiny nibbles next to the winding

- All of our clocks are original antiques, we source most of our clocks in
France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK. We prefer to buy our clocks in
original 'dirty' condition. We then clean the cases using a technique we have
developed over many years. We employ two qualified clockmakers who overhaul
the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they
will run trouble free.
