Here is a recent estate find. This is a Rare Antique French Victorian Brass Carriage Travel Desk Clock, made in France. This Clock measures approx. 4 3/8" Tall (5 3/4" Tall to Handle) x 3 1/4" Wide x 2 1/2" Deep. This Has a Brass & Glass Clock Case with Bevelled Glass with Ornate Top Handle. This has a Signed French Brass Mechanical 8 Day Wind-Up Movement which Winds and Sets from the Back, and Includes the Winding Key. It is Signed "Made in France". The White Porcelain Dial has a Chip in the Top Left Corner, Otherwise Fine. I wound the Clock and it Ran and Set Correctly, but I had to Shake it to Get the Movement Started before it would Run, then it Ran Fine. The Clock May Need Lube, Adjustments, Cleaning, or Attention. This is a Unique Clock in Overall Good Original Condition with a Nice Aged Patina! There is One Small Chip in One Of the Side Glass Panels in the Upper Corner, and the Rear Door Closes Tight. This Could Also Benefit from a Cleaning. ! Don't pass this one up! This is Estate Fresh, Sold As Found. Due to the Delicate Nature of these Old Clocks, I am Selling This "As Is" with NO RESERVE. Clock may need to be lubed and adjusted again after shipping. A stunning Rare Clock $174.99 Check out my other Rare Clocks!
