French 2-piece porcelain clock named, “Old Paris”, ca 1865. The 8-day mound French movement is signed, “Gilbert E. A. Paris”, and it has the typical makers circle with a name in it that I cannot read without taking the clock apart. No Thanks. The clock is 18 inches high, has no big problems just the usual small hairlines in the porcelain and the dial. The 8-day silk thread movement is running and striking a bell attached to the movement. The dial has a small chip at the strike arbor and some unappealing hairlines. The hands are correct, so is the pendulum and winding key. Overall a very eye-catching clock that collectors wish for. $400-$750.

The dial pans are correct, both covered with old paper dials, but may have been repapered years ago. Ithaca dial papers most always get changed several times because they are so easily available. The roller papers are dark and original, and the three hands look to be original. Ly-Calendar #342. $500-$800.
