Fine pendulum clock in gilt bronze, probably mercury, from the mid-19th century, around 1840 - Louis Philippe period.
Characterised by a combination of three matte gold areas and other glossy ones to add a dimension to the whole structure of the case.
The depiction is a sailor-fisherman supported by a Madonnina at the top of a Gothic temple.
Meticulously detailed in the fish, the net, the anchor, the trident and above all, the bas-relief of the central part depicting a sailing boat sailing alongside a fortress.
Dial intact, particularly elaborate hands.
The movement works properly, and uses a particularly rare suspension movement.
The pendulum has a number corresponding to the one imprinted on the plaque at the back.
Bell chimes the hour and half hour.
In very good condition except for some stains caused by age.
Comes with pendulum, bell and key.
Like all pendulum clocks, it is adjusted by setting up the escapement on the new table top.
Dimensions: 40 x 28 x 10 cm, weight: 5 kg.
