Rare French Scrollwork Skeleton Clock

This rare French skeleton clock is a true masterpiece of horology from the late 19th century. With the industry all but dominated by the English, French-made skeleton clocks are a rarity with unique artistry all their own, and this mesmerizing example is no exception.

The clock resides in a hand-engraved pierced frame, standing on gravity-defying countered scroll form legs. The dial is equally stunning, displaying the time on a white porcelain chapter ring with contrasting blue Roman numerals around a skeletonized dial center, further highlighting the clock’s intricate inner workings and visual appeal. Powering the clock is an 8-day movement completely on display within the frame that strikes the hour and half-hour on a bell.

This captivating skeleton clock is both a horological marvel and a stunning work of art. The overall design is a striking combination of elegance, complexity, and rarity that reflects the skill and craftsmanship of French clockmaking, making it a must-have for any antique clock collector or enthusiast.

This wonderful clock bears a complete restoration and a one-year warranty.
