Antique French brass Station Clock, 17” diameter with 13” diameter glass dial, 100% original in restored condition. Please read the full description. 10 day duration running timepiece movement, signed E. Flet. Movement has Graham dead beat escapement with center sweep second hand, All 3 clock hands are original to the clock, circa 1870-1890. The reverse painted glass dial is free of cracks or chips. There are three color touch-ups on the back of the dial, which were the result of the dial feet rubbing the dial, a very good color match and hardly noticeable. A layer of black flocked material was placed between the zinc dial plate and the glass dial to prevent damage. I prefer to ship the clock with the dial off and packed separately. This was a clock that hung on the outside wall of the train station in Lyon France. At some point the case was polished and sealed well before I removed it from the station building. The bottom of the case has a sliding brass pendulum access door. The front is hinged and lifts up. The top hinge pin was replaced. The clock comes with a wonderful old French key. This type of movement is always sensitive to balance. The clock was bolted to the wall when I saw it, so that it could not move when it was wound. If you collect unique and unusual antique clocks this is the one for you. The movement has been rebuilt and keeps good time. See photos.
