Description
A charming example of a French slate clock garniture dating from the 19th Century with a black slate face and brass roman numerals.

The clock is lovely quality, the case is black slate with fine detail motif in gilded engraving. The same fine detail motif appears on both of the "Tazza" garniture vases. The glass is of quality bevelled edged glass.

It has been thoroughly checked, cleaned and is in full working order. It keeps excellent time and chimes on the hour and on the half hour.

As you would expect the slate does have one or two insignificant nibbles but nothing to detract from the overall beauty of this timepiece.
The key is present.
  • Height 22cms  (8½")
  • Width 42.5cms (16¾”)
