Superb Antique French Cherub Clock by Vincenti
- Circa 1880 ~
~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~
A superb original antique French clock by the renown maker Vincenti.
Three cherubs hold the clock aloft with the sunburst pendulum visible, gently
swinging below. It is modelled in the round so ideal as a desk or table clock.
It is very well made of gilded metal with a white marble base.
The dial is enamel on copper with delicate swags of flowers between the numbers
and the original finely fretted gilt brass hands.
The French movement is
by Vincenti and is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having
been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Gilt sunburst pendulum is 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 some nibbles to the edges and some
discolouration. The dial is also in excellent
condition with no damage.

- All of our clocks are original antiques, we source most of our clocks in
France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK. We buy, please email photographs. 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.
