Item Description
Up for sale we have a Vintage L'Epee Fondee en 1839 Carriage Clock Saint Suzanne France.
This is a carriage clock made by by L'Epee of Saint Suzanne France. The face is porcelain and is marked L'epee Fondee en 1839 Saint Suzanne France. The movement is marked made in France 11 eleven jewels unadj. and includes the L'Epee crossed swords mark. I believe this clock has a twin barrels repeating movement. I am not sure of the age of the piece but i do not believe it is terribly old.
Condition
This clock has a couple of issues in regards to condition. The brass has some splotchy marks, almost like rust but it is not rust, i am not sure what it is. Also one of the side panels of glass fell out and there are some chips along the top edge. Other than these two issues the clock looks to be in good condition. I do not have a key so i can not wind it up to see how well it works. The clock will need a cleaning and adjustment but i see no reason to think it will not run well.
