Dresden Porcelain Clock

Mid 1800s

For bidding is a spectacular antique Dresden porcelain clock. Meissen influenced Rococo form and surface decorations. Terrific porcelain case done in a Rococo fantasy fashion with surface encrusted with flowers and garlands. Awesome complexity is evident in carefully applied flora and lustreous paint that is unmistakeable Dresden look. Beautifull turned and guilloche bronze dial with external glass cover and brass rim.

A great decorative item that is hard to come by and a definite must for collector of fine porcelain. Comes with antique brass movement including pendulum. Movement is untested and assumed to be not working due to age and will need possible repair.

Please note, the clock comes in original condition and shows some age related imperfections. The upper tip porcelain decoration has been repaired in the past and shows discoloration (see photo) - may need repair at future owners discretion. Some flower petals show chips as expected with this type of fragile decor. Otherwise complete and in good condition that may need some normal cleaning.
