Overview

An impressive late 19th century French marble and gilt brass perpetual calendar, four glass mantel clock with moonphase indication.

Case


The large and impressive case with moulded marble cornice over marble upright corners and bevelled glass panels to a moulded stepped base. Two doors, front and rear, allowing for easy access to all controls and parts.


Dial


The clock dial with Roman hours encircling a recessed centre with jewelled visible Brocot escapement set over another dial giving full perpetual calendar information of month, day and date as well as moonphases, all enclosed by the bissextile chapter.

The day of the month automatically corrects for the shorter months and thus takes the correct action on 28, 29 (for leap years), 30, or 31 day months.

Both dials set within an engraved gilded mask of elaborate foliate scrolls on a matted ground,


Movement

The fully restored eight day twin barrel clock movement with circular plates united by four pillars and rack striking the hours and half hour on a single bell, stamped Bally a Paris and numbered.

Both movements are of remarkable quality and design, in fully functioning restored order.

A very fine and rare clock in excellent original condition with the movements fully restored..

All of our clock movements are restored by our horologist who works exclusively for us.
