VERY ATTRACTIVE ART DECO MANTEL CLOCK
Signed: Robin à Paris
The spring-driven brass movement consists of going and striking trains. The going train has Brocot escapement with a short pendulum, which bears the number 6146. The striking indicates the hours fully and the half hours with a single stroke on a gong, mounted on the backplate, which is marked A.1. The movement is wound from the front.
The rectangular gold lacquered brass dial has black Roman hour numerals. The time is indicated by a stylised pair of blued steel hands. The dial is signed in an oval central field ROBIN à Paris whilst the winding holes are situated at the level of the IIII and the VIII. In the XII is a regulation arbor, which is operated by a watch key (Brocot regulation). The dial is protected by a door which has a bevelled glass with a gold lacquered brass frame.
The gold lacquered brass case is covered by four black marble panels and has doors on the front and the back. The hole rests on four brass block feet.
