Vintage 'Tolework' Advertising Clock from France for 'Chocolat Revillon'. Made as a point-of-sale advertisement, it was traditionally found in shops and cafés all over France from the 1920s to the 1950s.. The wavy outer shape, known as 'oeil de boeuf' (bullseye) mimics traditional French wall clocks of the 19th century. This is a particularly good example -in excellent condition with a minimum of wear. - a very sought after and collectible piece from the recent past. The clock has its original original brass wind-up pendulum movement . Measures 23 inches high x 17 wide.
I have another of these same clocks in my home- in virtually identical condition- but fitted with a modern battery quartz movement which has replaced the original wind-up pendulum movement. I am offering it at the same price as the other.
