A wonderful miniature grandfather clock circa 1910.
I believe its oak stained to look like mahogany. It has lovely inlaid stringing on the clock face and on the base similar to Tunbridge Ware.
The door does not open but the trompe l'oeil effect is achieved by carving into the wood to create the door and inlay to resemble a keyhole and hinges.
The clock does work but needs attention, it runs for a few hours then stops.
This is a lovely decorators piece or a classic piece of miniature furniture, perhaps made as an apprentice piece. It is also the appropriate scale for French dolls as part of a vignette or maybe a large scale dollhouse.
Measures 12 inches high, 5 inches across the base lip, 4 inches across the base by 1.5 inches deep. It has identical proportions to grandfather clocks from around 1760.
