Lot 92: Sold for £230 hammer

Estimate £150-£200

A late 19th Century French gilt metal and bevelled glass regulator mantel clock, the case surmounted by a twin handled urn with acanthus scroll mounts and hoof feet, enclosing an eight day movement striking on a gong and with mercury compensated pendulum, stamped Samuel Marti et Cie, numbered 2700 411, with white enamelled dial, raised to a gilt wood serpentine fronted base, height including base 42cm, S/D.

Condition report
There is a 2mm chip to the edge of the urn finial. There is a hairline crack just to the left of the number 6 marker on the dial. The dial is stained and could do with a clean and the case would benefit from a polish. The movement has not been seen running, but the pendulum and a winding key are both present. The blue velvet covering is worn to the plinth base and there is some wear to the gilded finish to the wood. However all feet are present and it appears structurally sound.
