Description
Longcase clock - Eugène Farcot (1850-1896) - Earthenware & bronze - Late 19th century
Mechanical - 8 day movement - Not striking

For sale a "boulangère" clock, credited to
Eugène Farcot (1850-1896).
The clock is in excellent condition.
It has been entirely cleaned, see the before and after pictures.
The mechanism works very well.
Dimensions of the clock: 54/24 cm
I think the earthenware was produced by the Hippolyte Boulenger manufacture in Choisy-le-Roi.
But I did not see any stamp inside the piece.
This could be why this type of clock is called a "boulangère" clock.
