French white marble cased clock with a “Japy Freres” round 8 day movement. It has a beveled glass in the brass sash, two toned marble dial, incised numerals that are gold filled, and correct original hands. On the back is a hinged brass cover over the movement opening. The pendulum is signed, “THFBLE”, or something close to that. Very unusual to see a signed pendulum. I added a picture of the movement to show you what I believe is something very unusual, and something I have never seen on another movement. Probably something very simple. It is the long metal piece that is attached at the bottom of the movement and extends upwards. It is signed, “Flourdelet.B?SG?”, or something close to that. It is running and striking properly. $100-$200.
French clock, more elaborate than the normal French clocks we get, but not without its problems. The brass/bronze clock tower and side statue are mounted to a marble base. The base is resting on large round brass feet. On the back is a hinged sash with a bowed glass over the movement opening. On the front is a beveled glass in the brass sash. The black marble dial in this example is outstanding with deep incised numerals that are gold filled. On the top of the clocks are some books, one is opened. The hunter with his gun is holding a bird I assume he just killed. Great clock with only one problem, the ornament on the right side of the clock is missing. This piece is 14 inches wide and 14 ½ inches tall. The pendulum is correct, the 8 day movement is signed, “Japy Freres” and “Blot aLRouard”, and it is running and striking the nickel bell attached to the back of the movement. $150-$250.
German box clock, very much like the common box clocks we have sold in the past. The oak case is 30” high, has an applied ornament on top, unusual glass design, one piece of glass with metal dividers on both sides. There is a round glass over the silver dial. The case is a typical German box, rather plain, but there are ripple like designs on each side of the door. The movement is seatboard mounted that slides in the wall braces. The 8 day movement is running and striking on 3 chime rods. Brass pendulum bob and a winding key inside the case. $50-$100.
German RA wall clock. A lot of good things, very few negatives. The walnut case is 30 inches high, nice woodwork from top to bottom, it has some applied crossed arrows trademark, ornaments top and bottom, otherwise is a pretty plain clock. Two piece porcelain dial, good pair of hands, nice brass pendulum bob, porcelain beat scale in the bottom, and an old key. It has three good glasses, and a door hook. 8 day movement is time only and running. $200-$300.
German RA with an 8 day time only unsigned movement. The unusual case is 31 inches tall without two missing finials on the top. The front of the case has unusual carvings and decorations on each side of the door and on top. The long pendulum is original and the “RA” porcelain part of the pendulum is excellent. Also the porcelain dial is perfect and it has original hands. The movement is held to a metal backboard bracket with thumb screws. The clock is running. Over all a very nice clock that you won’t have to stop when company spends the night. $200-$350.
