Rare French skeleton clock :
Price - Inquire.

French skeleton clock circa 1845 A rare, possibly unique, French skeleton clock made with ultra thin wheels.

The clock is fully striking but with only one winding square; as once the going-train is wound it becomes a remintoire for the strike train.

While the clock ticks it winds a small watch mainspring that drives the bell strike-train with locking plate mechanism.

The white enamel 6 diameter chapter ring has Arabic numerals with an ornate ormolu bezel. The main frame is made in the shape of a keyhole.

It is not signed by the maker but it is of very high quality and an accurate time keeper.
Eight day movement.

17.5 inches high w/o the glass dome.
Circa: 1845
