175-Octagonal French Tole Clock
An elegant mid 19th Century French Tole (metal cased) wall clock with its original loop handle to which a ribbon with a bow at the top was often attached to give it a more dramatic appearance. The cushioned form of the case would have been hard to make and required delicate soldering to link the sides together.
The eight day movement attached to an almost perfect Enamel dial is of very high quality French manufacture.
These clocks were only to be found in elegant homes and apartments.
Size: 36 cm diameter, 50 cm high (including handle), 10 cm deep
