A very desirable, rare and interesting antique French mantel clock with automation of two figures striking a bell in the tower. The clock has an eight day time and strike movement. When clock chimes every half hour and hour on the hour figures in the tower strikes the bell at the same time and the bell sound is very light, but sound from the wire gong has a deep tone. It sounds and looks like those figures strike the bell with a loud sound. The cast white metal ornate clock case with a dark grey/olive color is in fine original condition, except for one small scratch on the front just bellow the dial. Original ivory color porcelain dial has very faint hairlines at the 12 o'clock mark and 5 o'clock mark, also some small chips around the winding holes hardly noticeable. The front convex beveled glass is perfect and the front door closes tight. The back door latch works good. The "Marti & Cie" clock movement properly marked and has number 77997. The clock is ca 1900 and is in working condition and keeps good time. Please email us with any questions you may have about this clock.
