English hard stone gilt bronze and silvered mantle clock, attributed to Howell James, the design by E Finley circa 1871. Possibly made for the Turkish market.
The clock surmounted by a moon crescent centered by a star above an oriental finial. The oval case decorated with hard stones and centered by a circular enameled white dial, flanked to each side by a silvered elephant head attached to the case by chains, on a stepped spreading rectangular base, on four bun feet.
This beautiful and unusual clock has been subject to a complete overhaul by our qualified Horologist including cleaning the case and dismantling and cleaning the movement. The original gilding to the case and the enamel to the dial are in excellent condition. The clock is therefore in overall superior condition.
