18th Century French Louis XV Carved Walnut and Burl Tall Case Clock with Rooster
This elegant, antique long case clock was crafted in Lyon, France, circa 1760. The tall fruitwood grandfather clock, built in two sections; the top section with curved bonnet and crown, hosts the clock mechanism. The tall clock mechanism, embellished with a brass rooster, has been cleaned up and checked up, and is in excellent working order with two weights, pendulum, and winding key. The bottom section stands on small curved feet over a scalloped apron decorated with carved floral medallion. The case has a long center carved door with raised panel and embellished with shell, floral and leaf decor. The impressive clock keeps great time and strikes on the hour and half hour. This stately time keeper is in excellent condition commensurate with age and use with a rich walnut patina and a chanticleer at the top, symbol of France! Measures: 19″W x 13.25″D x 99″H.
