Antique French Crystal Regulator Cloisonne Champleve Palace Clock Mercury Rare. For your consideration is a very scarce French Champleve Chinese Cloisonne palace (Crystal Regulator) clock with mercury/lead pendulum. The clock looks to be made around 1920-30. All hardware solid brass with slotted screws.
Clock is very heavy thick solid brass. Chinese enamel Cloisonne is beautiful. The clock is an 8 day time and strike.
Counts the hours and does one strike on a nickel bell. This tall mantle clock stands 16" high x 8" wide x 7 deep. I had a friend whom works on clocks Replaced a broken suspension spring with one new old stock spring.Runs well now but said movement is dirty and a good cleaning and calibration is recommended soon. So no guarantees on performance or use. Case has most of the Cloisonne enamel and so does the original pendulum. Looks to be filled with solid lead or mercury composite with other metals in tubes.
The case does have wear and some tarnish. I wish to keep the patina original. Should clean or polish well. These clocks usually had an enamel lady.To find one with an enamel tubular type and with the striking bell is rather scarce. Do not let this one pass you by. Starting at 9.95 with no reserve. Expect it to go for a good amount. Do not procrastinate on this one. No warranties on clock of any sort. Extra Feature Forgot To List---The Clock has a manual chime adjustment pull cord on right. These were found on the earlier French and German wall and mantle clocks. EX---If clock is at 2:30 and the chime was to strike 3:00.
Pull and release once and will recalibrate to 3:00. You would not have to move the hands.
