Pick up this one tomorrow. It is meant to be French but will know more tomorrow when we get it home.
I hope you will let us see more photos when you get it home - I am curious.
Nice clock. It is French, indeed, circa 1880-1900. I suppose you'd call it a Delft style urn clock. A look at the movement when you have it may help us to identify the manufacturer, if it is stamped.
Picked it up today. No maker on movement. Marked 7114. Small crack in porcelain but otherwise in good nick.
I hope you don't have cats. It looks very top heavy on a narrow base.
I had a very similar one. It was surprisingly stable, despite the slender appearance.
It's funny that you say about the cats.....we went out to buy a clock a few weeks ago and came home with a clock and a cat! Long story but she is 19 years old and one of the reasons we took her is that she doesn't jump fences. However, not having cats for a few years...that night we shut her into the lounge...mainly to keep our inquisitive dogs from hassling her. Next morning hubby went in to feed her and couldn't find her. After searching under couches etc. he eventually found her sitting up on one of the cabinets amongst the clocks! Lucky they are all heavy and she is light! Have now moved anything delicate upwards.
19 years, that's a real senior cat! And still jumping....great!
If your cat likes clocks, some day you may find her on the computer checking out this message board!
