This is a very fine quality swinging cherub clock of French manufacture circa 1830 which has just been professionally restored and is in perfect working order.
I have owned many swinging cherub clocks over the years but this example is of far superior quality and has a very unusual movement which is beautifully made. I particulary like the gilded dial and bezel.

The four pillared case is veneered in flame has well cast ormolu mounts that include acanthus leaf moldings and bezel, Corinthian columns, decorative floral freezes top and bottom .'.

The eight-day time and strike movement strikes by countwheel on a bell, has a cherub swinging from a brass ring as the pendulum . The pendulum is suspended so that orients it to oscillate front to back, is captured by the crutch at the side of the movement rather than the back and has two steel pallets screwed directly to the crutch that alternately engage with two escape-wheels set in parallel on a single arbor.

A similar lot was sold at Auction Ref: Sotheby's, 'Joseph Meraux Collection', '93, Lot 358.

Hopefully the images will show any interested parties all they need but a personal viewing is recommended to see this lovely clock in operation
Please note that the quality and rarety of this clock far exceeds the more commonly seen examples with the Farcot timepiece movement which have the escapement on the back plate and are are generally housed in alabaster or spelter cases.
The clock is 17 inches tall , 9 1/2 wide and 5 1/4 deep l.
The clock is in very nice condition throughout and the movement has been stripped cleaned and serviced.
Like all antiques there are the odd agerelated marks but nothing worth mentioning specifically.
I am sure that it will delight the most discerning client.
