    Hi there, I'm pleased with my latest horological purchase. Seems it might have a monogram under the pendulum, but not sure. Will post that a bit later. Quite unusual.

    What a lovely boulle clock, the pendulum is quite unusual I think. I also like the hands very much. Congrats!

    Thank you. I will upload much better photos during the week, movement etc. I don't usually go for French clocks - because they are, for my taste too fussy (I like the 17th/18th century bracket clocks), but something about this one appealed.

    A few pics of the boulle clock. Dial needs a bit of work and case by no means perfect, but there we go...ClipClock remarks, the hands are nice, and have a sort of crystalline gilt application
