French Gilt Bronze Compendium Desk Clock
This wonderful French compendium desk clock is beautifully crafted and practical in design featuring both a desk clock as well as a barometer. The clock resides in a lovely bronze case with two oval housings for each dial. The timepiece rests on a cast base with cast ormolu adornments around the dial, base, and handle. An 8-day timepiece-only movement powers the clock which displays the time on a porcelain dial with Roman numeral hours and Arabic numeral minutes. The barometer displays the barometric pressure on a hand-painted porcelain dial with “Stormy, Rain, Change, Fair, and Very Fair” indicators.
This compendium clock bears a restoration and a one-year warranty.
