I bought this nice looking Bulle clock. It has a brass case which has been treated to a black color. I think this was original, but I cannot find anything on this model. Would love to hear if anyone does know this type and perhaps age. Thanks in advance, Peter
That is a beautiful case and clock. If you find the serial number on the movement, use this for the age: Bulle Serial Numbers
There is a section for listing your Bulle clocks, perhaps there would be more response there.
In the 1929 price list there is an Ogive style listed in gold patinated bronze as Model J. I have a model I which is the same shape but in mahogany and uses the same large movement that yours displays. As whatgoesaround suggests, maybe better if this could be moved to the "Post your Bulle here" thread it might be seen by more people with an interest in these specific clocks. Did you have a chance to look for a serial number yet?
I have found a reference to it in what I believe is a US trade leaflet promoting Bulle clocks to the American market. Unfortunately the leaflet isn't dated, but it must be post 1926.
The model in question is called "Gothic". I'll copy out the text because it isn't very clear from the scan:
No 1150, Gothic - A strong English design. Popular for hallways, den, living room. Heavy gauge brass with a rich Gold finish. Adjustable feet. Acceptable to any decorative motif. Six-inch silvered dial ; height, thirteen inches; width, eight and one-half inches.
It does seem that there are some quite unusual designs made specifically for the American market. This is a particularly nice example, and I suspect quite rare.
