French Gold Gilt Railroad Presentation Clock
French clock, gold gilt railroad presentation clock, Accurate time keeper, 11 1/2" tall, 7 1/2" wide and 2 1/2" deep. This gold gilt clock was most likely a presentation to someone associated with the railroad, circa 1840 - 1860. Note the old steam locomotive on the top. The 3" porcelain dial is perfect. The clock never had a glass crystal covering the dial. Originally it would have sat under an oval glass dome, and this explains why the gold is in excellent condition and well preserved. The cast metal case has NO damage or repairs. The original silk thread clock movement was beyond repair, just too many parts missing. It is now fitted with an accurate quartz clock movement. NO damage or alterations to the case. See last photos for some other Gold Gilt clocks we have listed, many of which have recently sold. The rear Dust cover has been replaced. Time keeping is with in a few seconds a month. The clock runs for one year on a standard "AA" size battery. Available at any Hardware store, or I can install one for $5
