Lot 188
A 19th Century French 8 day striking clock, surmounted by a gilt spelter figure of a seated lady depicting The Harvest 16" £100-150

This clock is in good condition overall. There is some wear to the gilt on the lady\\\'s face but otherwise she is complete. The dial has some discolouration around the winding holes but no cracks or major damage. There are 3 chips around the base, 2 of which are illustrated in the additional images. We do not know if the clock is in working order but as it is a simple Japy Freres movement, we do not believe that it will be too difficult to fix, if it turns out that it is not in working order.
