Description
French comtoise - Bonhomme frere - Copper, Iron (cast/wrought) - Second half 19th century
Mechanical - 8 day movement - half hour, one bell

comtoise with anchor escapement is entirely in order and runs and strikes well with repetition strike.
the timepiece is clean and oiled.
Comes with a lyre pendulum which is an original part of this clock. Can also be used with a long wire pendulum with lead bob or folding pendulum. Please indicate your preferred pendulum by message after the auction Please see photos
The clock comes with a mounting bracket and winding key to wind the timepiece which was fitted with new ropes.
The left door needs another locking mechanism, other than that it is fine.
if you prefer the lyre pendulum, then you will need to come and pick up the clock because of the vulnerability and length of the pendulum.
Pick up in Harderwijk (the Netherlands) is preferred, or it can be shipped with Track & Trace after consultation about the costs, as the weights will be sent separately.
