Overall in very good condition. The wood surfaces present with very minor surface scratches and abrasions, mostly concentrated to the area surrounding the pendulum, consistent with age and gentle use. The gilt bronze elements with some minor areas of rubbing and tarnish, not visually detractive. Two of the gilt bronze mounts are slightly loose at the base but stable and well-secured. The clock face with some minor losses to the paint, mainly concentrated to the numbers of the clock face and only visible upon close inspection. Clock face door opens and closes easily. When viewed in person, the ripped glass decorating the back of the clock presents with a deep azure blue coloration. Functionality of the movement is not guaranteed and it could need service at the buyer's discretion. Please note: this lot is sold with three keys.
