Description
Louis XVI table clock - Cronier - Gilt bronze, Marble - Second half 18th century
Mechanical - 8 day movement - half hour, one bell

Large clock from the Louis XVI period, with two soldiers from the battle, original and complete.
In working order, the movement is in good mechanical condition although we recommend that an expert adjusts it after it has been transported. Around 1780, signed by famous watchmaker of Paris Antoine Cronier.
Figures made from one piece each, very heavy. Some deterioration and dirtiness on the gilding. Missing the crystal on the front and rear lid. The pendulum and key are not original.
Please contact me for more information or if you have any doubts.
This is a very heavy clock, almost 30 kg. Can be collected in person with prior arrangement. If it is shipped, it will be suitably packaged and insured.
