Hello Friends:

This is a clock that I have worked on in the past, and was called out for some minor repairs. I thought that many of you would like to see it. It's interesting because I'm really not sure what it is. The high quality of the case decoration is in opposition to the poor case work itself. The customer thinks it's really old....I'm not so sure. It has an older French movement which looks like it was modified from a mantle clock. It seems like a French shaped case. My guess is 1940's. Check out the pictures and let me know what you think. Thanks in advance for your time.

Best regards,

Rich

The clock movement is probably late 19th century based on the AD Mougin mark. Does the pendulum line up with the hole in the middle of the case? If so, it could be a revival style harking back to French longcases of the 18th century.

It doesn't line up perfectly....it's a little higher than the hole....but I guess you would say it lines up. Rich

The decoration of the case looks like late 19th century, as well. That style of raised decoration was popular in China in the late Qing dynasty.
