Large French porcelain clock ca about 1880. This has been on our living room mantel for several years. There are no visible missing, repaired, or broken pieces but I guarantee there are broken, and or, repaired pieces. There must be a million delicate flowers and flower petals plus all the other tiny do dads all over the case. All the fingers, toes, and other sharp edge points appear to be there and intact. Nice colors on the porcelain as well as gold highlights. Because there was so much white porcelain, I had a difficult time getting the colors to show correctly in the picture. The clock is 19 inches tall, 16 Ĺ inches  wide at the base. It has a very nice bowed porcelain dial and correct French hands. The case is resting on six porcelain feet. The clock was in running condition when I bought it 30 years ago, but we did not run it all the years we owned it. I would recommend you oil it if you plan to run it regularly. We almost never see these fine French clocks for sale. I would not recommend shipping this clock by UPS, FedEx, or the USPS. We have the best shippers in the USA but I donít see how it could be safely packed. I am sure my shipper would disagree. Pickup here if at all possible. $1000-$2000.
