Description of the item

This is a really lovely clock! Very pretty model in super condition. You see a few variations of this model which reduced in quality and detail through to about 1920. We've dated this c1890 as it is much more detailed and elegant than those later models.
The undamaged Alabaster body and the gilded mounts have all been very carefully cleaned. The movement needs winding once a week and has been fully serviced. It strikes on a bell (once at the half hour and 'counts' the hours on the hour). If you didn't want it striking, that is OK and won't damage the movement. It has its original platform escapement (vs a pendulum) so doesn't require any difficult set-up and can easily be moved for cleaning etc.

25cm tall, 9cm deep, 13cm wide
