• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Found this one in a flea market...

Hello folks! This clock was recently for sale at a local flea market. I simply couldn't pass it up! It's 27 1/4" tall and in great shape!
Anyone know who made it? Looks like the dramatist Pierre Corneille

Hello,and wellcome to this message board!That's a french marble clock with a magnificent topper!The manufacturer of these clocks often left their mark on the back plate of the movement,under the bell.Let's see some pics of the mvmt.These are high quality clocks, a book of reference is Nicolas Thorpe's "The French Marble Clock",not expensive and verry informative.Wellcome again,we look foreward to more pictures!
