A stunning Cloisonne French table clock of small proportions with fully compensated lever platform escapement by E Maurice and Co (c1880)
The Highly polished brass case with Cloisonne to the top and columns has been polished using an age old technique using chalk and although labour intensive gives a finish that cannot be replicated using modern cutting compounds. The glazed sides allowing the owner to view the beautifully restored movement.
The silvered dial mask having a few age-related marks does not detract from the overall beauty of this clock has been left as original.
The highly polished movement has been fully overhauled by me personally and comes with a full three year guarantee for your peace of mind.
E Maurice and Co are recorded as working at Rue Charlot 75, Paris and showed carriage clocks at the 1889 Paris exhibition. They used Ernest Pitcher and Co, London as their sole importers into the UK and it is certainly this company who bought this clock into the UK in the late 1800,s
