Magnificent French Four Glass crystal regulator c1875. The clock is in a rectangular brass case with sculptured architectural plinth and cornice mouldings. Bevelled glass panels to sides and also to top - a very uncommon feature. It has a stepped, white enamelled dial with black roman numerals and blued steel moon hands. Dial signed Hry Marc Paris. Exposed or visible deadbeat Brocot escapement with ruby pallets. Gilt brass winding bezels. An 8-day movement striking the hours and single strike to the half hour on a bell. Working Brocot adjustable twin-flask mercury compensated pendulum. Backplate stamped with maker's name (S Marti et Cie) within a 'Medaille de Bronze' (awarded 1860). Supplied with keys. External dimensions are 30 cm height, 17 cm width and 13.5 cm in depth. A very desirable example. See more images and watch a brief video of it striking (on our website).
Fully cleaned and serviced but retaining its antique brass patina. The clock's movement is covered by our 12 month warranty in the UK.
This clock is in excellent overall condition commensurate with age. No chips, cracks or any damage to the pristine dial or glass panels.
