Splendid MOREZ wall clock. France, 19th century. Made of walnut wood, golden brass and veneer. Chime for hours and half hours, with key and clapper.
The elegance, finesse and good operation of this Morez clock make it a very decorative item, full of class and style. Profusion of decorations carved into the wood, in the Baroque style. The clock still has its two keys and all its parts and mechanisms are in perfect conditions.
Morez clocks are known in France as ‘Comtoise’, alluding to the region were they had their origin: Franche-Comté, where the town of Morez is, very close to the Swiss border.
The particularity of the Morez clocks is the way in which the gears of their mechanism are placed. Its movement is on the left and the sound on the right, just as it was done before on the "Lantern" clocks, they are between vertical pillars. In the chime system, the Morez also brought unique novelties since their creation. Morez are inspired in part by the 17th century “religious clocks” and the axis to which the arm of the hammer joins is vertical, and it is driven directly from a gear wheel of the striking train.
Great quality. Most clocks require special care or basic clockmaker skills to keep them working properly, but a Morez clock can work reliably for many years, in almost any condition and with little care.
An opportunity to acquire a magnificent and original piece.
