This French crystal regulator has twisted beaded columns on all four corners and a ribbon frieze around the top and the bottom of the clock. When coupled with the silver dial and its attractive centre as well as the twin barrel mercury pendulum, the overall effect is very pleasing and is a cut above other clocks of this type. The clock is not too large at 27cm high and 17cm wide so will fit nicely on a mantel or on a good furniture piece. There are bevelled glasses on both sides and on the front and back doors. The clock case has been cleaned and all metal parts lacquered to prevent tarnishing.The clock has an eight day movement which we have fully overhauled. The clock strikes the half hour once on a gong and then counts the hours at 12. Comes with correct double ended key and setup instructions.
