Fashionable French Wall Clock
Clocks made of Tole (Metal) that where where 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 cannot be guaranteed and could be replaced with a modern quartz.
