    EMILE GALLE AND HIS FATHER CHARLES PRODUCED FANTASY ARMORIAL FAIENCE PIECES SUCH AS THIS IN A WORKSHOP AT ST.CLEMENT, (THEN OWNED BY THE THOMAS FAMILY), BETWEEN THE YEARS OF 1864-1876.
    ST.CLEMENT IS A NEIGHBOURING TOWN TO NANCY WHERE EMILE WAS BORN,LIVED AND DIED AND CHARLES HAD A FINE CRYSTAL AND CERAMICS STORE.

     
    PROVENANCE OF THIS CLOCK SET: FROM THE INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL PRAGUE,REMOVED DURING RE-FURBISHMENT.
     
    ALL 3 PIECES SIGNED IN UNDERGLAZE BLUE.....ST.CLEMENT.
     
    THIS IS A HUGE SET AND AMAZINGLY IMPRESSIVE.
    IT IS RARE TO FIND THE 3 PIECES TOGETHER.
     
    THE CLOCK SIZE IS 49.53 CMS HIGH X 43.18CMS WIDE X26.67CMS DEEP.
    THE SIDE LION CANDLESTICKS ARE 43.18CMS HIGH.
     
    THERE HAS BEEN SOME PROFESSIONAL RESTORATION,INVISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE.NOTHING DRASTIC, NO GREAT CHUNKS BROKEN OFF OR ANYTHING HORRENDOUS,JUST MINIMAL WORK TO A FEW EXTREMITIES TO BRING IT BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL AND PERFECT CONDITION.
     
    TYPICAL OF GALLES' WORK ARE THE RECURRING ARMORIAL SUBJECTS SUCH AS THE TOWERS,LIONS,HELMETS AND SHIELDS.
    TO SAVE YOU RESERCHING, THE BANNER ON THE LION SIDE PIECES READS IN LATIN...'NON INULTUS PREMOR' WHICH TRANSLATES TO ...'I CANNOT BE TOUCHED UNAVENGED', THIS IS THE MOTTO OF NANCY.
    THE SHIELDS SHOW A THISTLE AND THE 3 ALERIONS(BEAKLESS,FEETLESS BIRDS) THESE ARE SYMBOLS OF THE TRADITIONAL PROVINCE OF LORRAINE IN WHICH NANCY AND ST.CLEMENT WERE SITUATED.
     
    THE MOVEMENT IS ORIGINAL TO THE CLOCK.IT IS AN 8 DAY BELL STRIKE,SOUNDING THE HOURS AND HALFHOURS,WITH THE STAMP OF SAMUEL MARTI & CIE MEDAILLE DE BRONZE (THIS STAMP WAS USED BETWEEN 1860-1889).
     
    IT HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALY STRIPPED, CLEANED AND SERVICED,AND IS IN PERFECT WORKING ORDER.
    NOTE: RELATING TO THE CLOCKS' SIZE THIS IS ONE OF THE LONGEST PENDULUMS I HAVE SEEN ON A MANTEL/TABLE CLOCK,A FULL 26.67CMS LONG.
     
    A TRULY SUPERB SET, DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE ITS SIZE IT IS VERY LARGE INDEED.
