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.

    Mr. Kempen
    I find the feedback you wanted to make against me unfair for the following reasons:
    - that it was a restored object was well told and documented in the description with two photos of the detail.
    - you find excessive 26 euros to pack and send a package from Sicily to Belgium? I remind you that postal rates are differentiated if the parcel leaves from continental Italy or from Sicily, which, as you well know, is an island and moreover very south compared to the continental Eropa. Furthermore, the excessive rates proposed are not accepted by Catawiki in the beginning
    - finally forgets that you have won this item for only one euro!
    Finding his judgment for reasons excessive
    above, I would be very grateful if you wanted to change it.
    Eventually I am well prepared to receive back the object not of his liking with the reimbursement of the postal and packaging expenses that I faced.
    with regard

    Book in nice condition.

    Package was sent to a UPS pick up point. Secondly my address wasn't mentioned. It took me a lot of hassle to receive the book. Why not send to my actual address??

    Very correct seller. Although the clock was packed very well, the marble clock was received in many pieces. After I had reported it, the seller reimbursed the full amount. Awesome. Thanks

  • Nonostante il pacco sia stato confezionato molto bene, il quadrante ha subito un piccolo danno alle ore V. La ceramica si e' staccata (circa 1cm2). Dovro' farla riparare. Il venditore non ha colpa.

  • Eine superschöne Sappho aus dem 19. Jahrhundert. Beim Transport sind die Schemelbeine leider abgebrochen und ein Arm war schon mal repariert. Trotzdem freue ich mich über das sehr schöne Teil!

    Vielen Dank für das positive Feedback mit einer intelligenten Interpretation der Situation und mit viel Ehrlichkeit.
    Ich werde immer mehr davon überzeugt, dass schwere Gegenstände aus Marmor oder Bronze mit Anhängen angesichts der Behandlung, die sie erhalten, praktisch nicht transportierbar sind.
    Zu seinem Trost habe ich, obwohl ich versucht habe, möglichst schützende Verpackungen zu ermöglichen, auch eine Versicherung abgeschlossen.
    Wenn Sie also über den Spediteur oder direkt auf das Versicherungsfoto der Box (mehr bei äußeren Verletzungen) und der aufgetretenen Verletzungen gesendet werden, kann dies kompensiert werden.
    Lass es mich wissen
