Very Unusual French Morbier Tall Case Clock Ca.1800.
Extremely Nice Grand Father Clock. This case was purchased by an antique dealer 40 years ago while scouring the French country side. It did not have a movement and he held onto it hoping to find the correct movement. Due to illness he left the business and I was fortunate enough to acquire this lovely case and now have incorporated a very old, probably 18th century Morbier movement. The clock is set up and runs fine, keeping accurate time. It chimes on the hour only on a large cast bell, the porcelain face is in good condition. The case is all original, hand wood pegged construction, original finish and hardware, beautiful color and patina.
The dimensions are: 17"w x 12"d x 88"h.
