A Magnificent pair of very large 19th century Clock Faces from a church or town hall Clock Tower in southern France. The faces were constructed with enamelled panels on top of copper bases, the enamel having been worn and cracked over the years so that now the copper shows through in several places, now stabilised but giving the old faces a wonderfully distressed look. The pairs of hands are original and adjustable. The mechanism of the clock is no longer in existence. (Its possible to get modern electric movements fitted to make the clocks workable.) The Clocks are lettered with the makers name and address 'L.Joly & Huchez- Ferrieres- Oise'. Second photo shows the pair on either side of my house front door.
Primary photo shows my daughter Milly with one clockface to give some human scale ! (See the second clockface shown as separate item)
The faces measure 80 inches each in diameter. circa 1860-1890.
PRICE GIVEN IS FOR ONE CLOCKFACE.- BUT ALSO FOR SALE AS A PAIR- Enquire at my shop..
