Exceptional French Painted Porcelain and China Clock. It is so elegant and beautiful.

(First of all I have very minimum knowledge of antique clocks, so below is everything I can understand from the physical clock itself).

I really tried to take pictures that would help you.

I do not know if it works, and do not wish to try.

I do not know the age. It is old. But it has been a cherished possession.

The beautiful porcelain piece of the couple in the garden is excellent condition. It is signed "Petit".

The face, which I also think is porcelain, is excellent. On the bottom it states "Portland, Me." and the top, I don't know. It looks like a W and maybe a 10 letter word ending in "er & Co".

The decoration, seen in one photograph, is heavy gold in relief, floral and leaf decoration, and is on the front, on the top, on both sides and on the back w it states, in gold, "Made in France".

T is a lot of rich heavy metal appointments all over the clock, including the feet, in gold.

The case is a lovely pink. No damage.

Bevelled bezel, framed.

The pendulum is heavy brass and has a number on it. 6070, or could be 8070. 6 inches long.

T are three keys, two big ones and a tiny one.

Weight of clock. About 9 pounds.

Measurements: 10 inches tall. 11 inches wide. 5-1/2 inches deep.

Measurements: Porcelain painting. 9-1/2 inches x 5-1/2 inches, but that is with the clock face. At the base of the face the measurements are 5-1/2 inches x 3-1/2 inches.

Inside, I just took a picture, I am hopeful that nothing is missing in t, as the clock has been stored for a very long time, but the keys a pendulum were in a felt bag and taped to the clock, so I assume it is all t

Condition: The clock is in excellent condition. T are no chips or cracks, none of the adornment is missing. The porcelain and painting is excellent. I had to look through a magnifying glass to recognize any crazing, very minimal.

I have tried to cover everything, but please email me if t is something else that I can help you with. I do hope someone can bring this beauty back to life. I will pack it really good, so nothing should happen to it.
