This is a unique, authentic antique French table or mantel clock. It was made around 1810. It has a white enamel dial, with roman numerals on it. It works and chimes perfectly, everything was checked and cleaned by professional clock makers. It still has its original authentic gilded bronze work (it was fire gilded in 24 carat gold) and it is a true eye-catcher. The clock has an 8-day spring-driven movement with anchor escapement and silk suspended pendulum. It strikes the half hours and full hours on a bell with count wheel striking. It comes complete with its pendulum, re-winding key and bell. It comes with everything.


The dial of the hour-work was signed by the French Gileau (Palais Royal N. 129 à Paris). This clock will be a beautiful eye-catcher in any room or place that it is put in. It is a very fine quality piece of art.

This big clock is exceptionally beautiful in that it combines true creative artistry with conventional, neo-classical figurine aesthetics. Its base, held up by animal paws, was beautifully decorated with a fine decorative relief. On top of that base, two animals (signifying strength and power) are surrounding the clock and hour-work, next to two neo-classical Egyptian pillars.

Then, on top of the clock, is a figurine playing the flute, accompanied by a small angel holding another musical instrument. The scenery is very lively and its aesthetic qualities are very telling of the quality of their makers: the way in which the curls of the hairs are shaped, the lively manner in which the putti comes running into the scene and the expression on the faces of the two animals on the base: this is clearly a very skilled clock maker. Some small parts of this clock show minor signs of wear, however this is only due to its age and authenticity.

The measurements of this clock are about:
53 cm high - 21 inch high.

42 cm wide - 16.5 inch wide.
16 cm deep - 6 inch deep.

Price $8,200
