ConditionThe fine French movement is by Admyrauld of Paris, most likely the father Louis Henri Admyrauld who is listed in Tardy (with the spelling of Admyrault) as becoming master in 1724 and moving to rue de la Comedie-Francaise in Paris in 1748. It is of excellent quality, a five pillar movement with original verge escapement that runs nicely. It strikes a large and most likely original bell underneath the removable top of the case every hour and half. We have fully overhauled and tested the movement, it runs for 8 days. it is complete with probably the original iron key complete with a Sotheby's lot number from 1994. Click the video clip below to hear the bell and watch the clock running!Condition of the clock case is very good, we have carefully cleaned both the Boulle marquetry and the ormolu mounts, the aim of conserving the clock rather than restoring to as new condition. There is some slight loss of brass inlay, mostly to the right hand shoulder, a few old, localised shell replacements
