China, 1736-1795. Imperial Canton Tribute. Fire gilt copper with inlaid lapis, carnelian, rock crystal, turquoise, tourmaline and others. The matching flowers made of enameled porcelain.

Provenance: From a French private estate.
Condition: Fantastic original condition. Definitely the best that came to the market in decades. The stand, the handles at the shoulders, the back plate for the movement and most important, the porcelain flowers with their fire gilt bronze leaves are almost always missing. Here, everything is still in place. The reason is that this clock was in the same family for almost 150 years! The movement is in fine and complete condition, there are no replacements, but it needs a service by a professional watchmaker in case you want it to run normally. The enameled bezel is in superb condition with only minor wear, the hands are original. The porcelain flowers have some minor chipping. The clock has overall some wear and a good natural patina but no damage whatsoever and no losses at all, except two of over two hundred (200) inlaid ruby glass cabochons. Some of the original stones were loose and have been reset.

Weight: 554.5 grams.
Dimensions: Height 32 cm with the flowers and 21 cm without.

The French watch has a white enamel dial, Roman numerals for the hours and Arabic numerals for the seconds, surrounded by a facetted bezel. The back and sides of the clock with fine incising work. Two bats serve as handles on the shoulder. Matching bronze stand. There are several holes where the flowers are placed, so that their position can be changed, which makes it look quite different whenever this is done. The front of the clock shows inlaid peaches, pumpkins, double gourds, plums, pomegranates, always in pairs. They are surrounded by leaves and vines in high relief. The frame of the clock is completely inlaid with square ruby glass cabochons.

品相::非常好的原始狀態。絕對是近畿十年來進入流通市場保存最好的同時期挂鐘。絕大多數同時期挂鐘的底座、肩部執柄、機芯底盤以及重要的陶瓷花飾以及鎏金葉子經常已經丟失。而此鍾的各個部件都毫無缺損。究其原因是此鈡在過去150年裏都一直在家族收藏中。機芯處於良好和完整的狀態,沒有替代品,但爲了它能正常運轉,還需要專業製表師調試。琺瑯表圈處於極好的狀態,只有輕微的磨損,指針是原裝的。 瓷器花有一些小的碎片。 時鐘總體上有一些磨損和良好的自然光澤,但沒有任何損害,也沒有任何損失,除了200多個紅寶石玻璃鑲嵌中缺了兩個。一些原裝寶石丟失部位已補充完整。

重量: 554.5 克
尺寸:高 32 厘米含花;21 厘米不含花
