Lovely & rare late 19th century miniature keywind cabinet clock of french origin. Could be used as a desk clock or a lovely and unique dollhouse miniature clock. Case features pierced silver design with a mother of pearl background on the front. It is decorated with a rooster on the front and back as part of the clock case design. The dial is hand painted with raised marker and gilded hands. The two reference I could find, both originated out of france.
Comes with its original key which winds the works and sets the time. The inside of the clock case is gold gilded. The case for the works is heavily tarnished, unpolished and will need to be polished if desired. The clock works portion is not working, and will need to be serviced and have the mainspring replaced. The last one of these I found was gilded and sold for just over $1100.00 in working condition - priced accordingly. Provided there are no other issues with the works, it should cost around $200.00 to have the works serviced and a mainspring replaced. You will want to check with your local dealer to confirm the costs.
The 800 silver clock case is marked with the German origin hallmark and 800 silver along with the clock case makers hallmark. I believe the case was made by Abel & Kren based upon the style of the hallmark, but this has not been verified.
The watch works I believe are French and are marked with a Star and Symbol. I do not know who made the works. Dial has a chip hidden by the cover. Works look clean, when winding, you can hear the mainspring let go, so it will only wind and wind as result... it does not wind up. The glass crystal looks to be original.
This is just a lovely clock ready for a new love.
