It is highly unusual to come across such a LARGE elegant antique, SOLID CAST BRONZE CLOCK, chiming on a bell, Large Size and Museum Quality -- especially one with such a great design and amazing detail, and in mint condition. The clock is a keywound 8 Day time and strike movement, and has its original porcelain dial, which is in perfect condition [mark seen is from dirt on glass in bezel (which will be cleaned), not on porcelain dial itself]. It also has its original gold or brass gilded hands. The beveled glass over the clock dial appears to be original as well, with all in excellent condition.
The clock is in good running order, was just looked over by a master clocksmith, and strikes well, and beautifully. Please look closely at the other amazing design, styling, and presence that this grand clock possesses -- and shown in the pictures. This clock is truly a great, and a very large size, special work of art. It weighs in at approximately twenty pounds.
This stunning clock's movement is marked by the very highly regarded French maker A D Mougin (considered at least on a par with and perhaps better than Japy Freres and Samuel Marti). The clock measures approximately 18 inches (44 cm) in height, and 11 inches (22 cm) in width, from its widest points.
It is very unusual to see a clock like this clearly patterned after and influence by the Antique Empire Portico Clocks of this era. There is no mistaking the similarities -- this one is just VERY RARE & UNUSUAL Empire Portico Clock that is in Solid Bronze!
