  • Fashionable French Wall Clock

    Clocks made of Tole (Metal) that were painted either in plain colours or in various floral designs were only to be found in elegant residences in France in the 19th century. They were often hung with a ribbon through the brass ring at the top of the clock in between tall French windows. The 8 day mechanical movement is original to the clock and strikes hourly and half hourly on a spiral gong. The movement works but has not been fully restored, so cannot be guaranteed to be a perfect time keeper.
