HORTON'S ANTIQUE CLOCKS JULY 2019
French Mystery double statue clock with swinging pendulum, ca 1867. Most observers think the pendulum is a torsion or rotates like a conical pendulum. In fact, it is neither, but is a true mystery movement. The movement is 8-day and it is running. This clock has a ball top on which the brass dial numerals and gold hands are attached. It stands almost 22 inches high. Holding the movement aloft are two bronzed cast white metal figures that are called “Harvest Queen”. All are on a metal base with metal designs and attached ornaments. It has the original finish that is near perfect. Note the balls and base has a green shade. $2000-$3000.
