21.           $500

French palm tree clock, case is brass/bronze, some onyx, and has many metal ornaments, ca 1885. The white onyx case is very good but you donít see much onyx for all the brass or bronze attachments. The dark sections such as the sitting lady and small piece below the dial, are also brass with a covering to make them dark. The clock is 22 inches high, 15 inches wide, complete with the many metal moldings around the bottom of the base, top of the base, and below the lady. Nice one-piece porcelain dial is not signed, good pair of French hands, beveled glass, and a brass sash. It has the typical 8-day round French movement, and striking a nickel bell on hours and half hours. The movement is not signed. This is one of the first clocks I bought back in the early 1970ís, never ran it, no desire to, it is a decorator clock. I still have not hung the pendulum, so it probably needs oiling. $500-$1000.
