Object Description

An unusual French four-glass mantel clock in a gilt and silver-plated architectural case. The steep tile-effect roof, with crenelations and spires at its base, is supported by block-work columns, alternately textured to resemble stonework.

The eight-day two-train movement is by Vincenti & Cie, Paris with anchor escapement, and is half hour striking on a coiled gong. The movement bears Vincenti’s Medaille d’Argent exhibition stamp, awarded in 1855.

Original matching blued steel hands.

Original pendulum, the centre with intricate fleur-de-lys castings.

The silver chapter ring frames a brickwork-effect centre superimposed with gilt motifs of lions and fleur-de-lys. The Arabic numerals are typical of Art Nouveau styling.
